Stanley Kubrick, one of my idols, seemed to never make a film out of any other reason than inspiration. Even he didn’t know when his next movies was going to be released and the schedules were notorious for not holding their mark. Continue reading “Good content has never been more unpopular”
It’s not about how good or bad your content is – it much more about the algorithm, it will give your following multiple times more than the quality of your content ever will. Maybe I’m just backwards, anti-change, anti “new things” but I can’t help think that is fundamentally wrong. It is truly not the humans steering the ship, but the algorithm. It is obvious that this is not the natural, organic way. Should it be? The true crime is that if you’re not even aware of this, when you could and should be. More discussion is needed. Away from the Kardashians. Continue reading “Of interesting wants and relevant needs”
Alex Jones is an excellent example of this. He is of course 95% clown and 5% journalist, and yet, I have a feeling that the majority of his followers take his stuff all too seriously… His topics are often serious, but his spin on them is… merely entertaining.

The topic sounds unreal. Yet we know that is currently real with YouTube.
Having a video sharing platform that has no real limits on the amount of video you share, would be insane. Continue reading “Youtube – limitless and cost free live video sharing!”
Youtube has been around for many years, and yet it is so new, that many obvious and profound problems materialize only now.
YouTube makes the video content creator responsible of the content of every comment section of every video that he/her has ever published.
This means that if your video comment section contains something (specific words) that the YouTube algorithm has deemed “advertiser unfriendly” your video will not give you any financial gain. i.e. You will be put out of business.
Moderating must be one tough and dirty job. As a moderator you are bound to make huge mistakes as a human being is simply not equipped to get inside the head of another person. What exactly did he mean by that message? Often, sadly, that is not clear even to the sender him/herself. Continue reading “On commenting and moderation in social media platforms”
Youtube video by the channel Veritasium, suggest that a social media company, which name starts with an F, gets a big chunk of it’s income from fake profiles, fake likes, fake attention. That content is amazing, and what is much more amazing is the upheaval it has not stirred up.
