We Get to Watch It!

So yes, it's pretty obvious that my totally cool YouTube channel (see previous post) looks nothing like yours. And that's the big difference in the old world TV world and the new YouTube internet world. We all get to control what we decide to watch and when. It's such a little thing, but it's everything.

We no longer are manipulated by the major networks.  We manipulate ourselves. We can delve into the vast archive, the always expanding pool and decide what we want to spend our time rolling our eyeballs over.

We unplug from the "great leveler" which was network TV and kind of customize our own experience. Watching is a much more personal, customized experience.  It's not a shared thing, but very much a solitary project.

Maybe it isolates us, or insulates us, or just serves us in a much more fulfilling entertaining way. Maybe it does all three things simultaneously. I see it as a positive thing. I can decide what's important, what's thrilling, what's cool. And I get to watch it.
