"The Collective Will and Impetus of the New Generation to operate their own streaming video servers."


I would say the same thing about MySpace and personal web servers too. The dumbing-down of technology comes at a price. Remember when desktop publishing first broke & people started designing pages with 20+ fonts on them? That's how bad 90% of the MySpace pages I've seen are. It's the age of flaming logos & blinking text all over again.

YouTube is yet another example. How many homemade videos have any kind of decent quality whatsoever? Or are they all drunken coeds eating insects at keggers & the like?

Television at least puts the little "amateur video" bug on the screen as an apology for low-grade content.

For any person who's complaining about being banned or whatever from YouTube - put up your own server. It's not Rocket Science!

What exactly is the Big Rush that you're supposed to get from providing a corporation with royalty-free content to begin with? At least if you run your own server & give your content away for free you get the 'benefit' of the server logs so you have some idea of who's looking at it.

If the kick is to be a User and just watch videos for free - there's always BitTorrent and that sports much better resolution.



Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!
