For those new to me, allow me to myself!

I'm a 49yr old dude, in the Lebowski line of dudes, who likes to live stream in the Twitch "Just Chatting" section. I focus on kindness, mental health, good discussions, eating out, going on local adventures, and every Sunday my girlfriend and I do a cooking stream!

Aside from that, I've got a blog that's about all sorts of things like photography, mental health, my life, and THE FEDIVERSE!

Links are in profile.

And Hi!

When challenging someone's perspective stop and ask yourself these questions...

1) What do I understand about the others perspective?
2) What do I understand about my own perspective?
3) Could I be wrong?
4) What do I want the other to understand about my perspective?
5) What do I want the other to understand about their own perspective?

If you find yourself skipping the first three, you're not really trying to have a discussion and may want to check your ego.

I just want to thank @LuceroC556 for always indulging me in my quest for understanding. People often find me too aggressive and it’s nice to know that he trusts my intentions.

Thanks buddy.

Hey @therealweissman I made your dinner rolls for Thanksgiving, and they were superb! Thanks so much for a great recipe!

I am thankful that after the inauguration that political posts will probably drop by 50% or more!!!

The older you get, the more you except the truth that sleep is not only a good way to get rest, but also a handy form of time travel.

But whatever service a person chooses the point is still the same. Video content creators need to empower themselves and need to start moving their content to other services and learn how to promote themselves and connect with ad services.

Otherwise YouTube will just get worse.

What I personally would like to see are more people using video services like joinpeertube.org . Although it needs more work and possibly a little funding, the Peertube project is an admirable attempt at creating a decentralized and federated video sharing service.

Most people have no clue how to do either. Which is why they rely heavily on YouTube who does most of the work for them.

So I believe that until video creators start doing what bloggers have been doing for years, YouTube will keep fucking creators over.

However this isn't completely YouTubes fault. There ARE other video services. People could move their content. So the issue isn't that there aren't other places to go, it's that creators would have to be responsible for their own discoverability and monetization.

Not only is this unfair to the small creator, but it also highlights how as YouTube has gotten bigger, their connection to their users has become increasingly smaller.

No other video service has the discoverability that YouTube has and they know this.

Youtube recently changed it's TOS and now they will start showing ads on small channels that haven't yet met the criteria to be monetized, without sharing that revenue with the creator. These channels will also not be able to choose the types of ads that are shown.
