How YouTube democratized the job of content creator

+Robert Kyncl​​ - formerly VP of Content at +Netflix​​ , currently chief business officer at +YouTube​​ - argues the YouTube Partner Program had lead to the current "streampunk" was of content creation:

George Strompolos, currently the CEO of the media company Fullscreen, helped create the Partner Program. He told me that the company “wanted to ensure that YouTube would be a home for new voices, not just to get seen but hopefully to generate some income and earn a full-time living.” It was one thing to give people an opportunity to connect with an audience; it was another to give them a paycheck.

Since then YouTube has paid out billions of dollars to media companies. But Kyncl thinks the biggest impact had been on individual creators:

But the most significant consequence of YouTube’s revenue sharing has been the democratization of the job of internet content creator. Every month, we deposit money into the accounts of millions of creators around the world. That money is what helps a streampunk get his or her start. It’s what changes the act of making videos from a hobby to a trade. It’s what transforms a career in entertainment from an option available only to the well-connected or very lucky to a path that is open to almost anyone.

There have been some growing pains this year, with YouTube coming under fire from both advertisers and governments. I think it can be argued that the content policies are now strictly enforced now than they were a year ago. But still, I think there are few alternatives for video creators to earn from their creations.

Important Aspect of the Brain's Navigational System Identified

The ability to successfully navigate in the environment is essential both for animals searching for food or escaping predators, as well as for human urban dwellers. It is something we take for granted, but under the hood, it is supported by still incompletely understood brain networks that continuously calculate our position in the environment. Moreover, the location where certain experience occurred is an indispensable building block of memory.

The research is in Neuron. (full access paywall)

Methuselah Star Is Older Than The Universe – How Is It Possible?
_September 22, 2017 | Astronomy
Nicknamed Methuselah Star, the star HD 140283 is located only 190 light years from Earth. There are many reasons why the Methuselah Star is very interesting, but the greatest problem of all is that the star gives scientists a serious problem that cannot be solved easily.

Methuselah Star is older than the Universe. How is it possible?

The truth is, it’s hardly possible at all. Stars older than the Universe cannot exist in our Universe. So, either something is wrong with the age estimation of these stars, or something wrong with the estimated age of the Universe. Another option is that scientists have encountered “something” they simply don’t understand well enough.

Q: "Is it legal for Donald Trump or Sarah Huckabee Sanders to call for someone to be fired for their political beliefs or activity?
A: No. It's a federal crime (18 U.S. Code § 227) that could lead to a fine, 15 year prison term, and barring from holding any office of the United States.
 
Just something to keep in mind as Trump and co. continue to attack professional athletes for exercising their First Amendment rights. It's a federal crime each time they call for them to be fired.
 
(and sorry, Trumps and Trumpettes, it's not a crime to refuse to stand for the anthem under 36 U.S. Code § 301)

A tiny little gras-patch surrounded by palmtrees. I could have a pick-nick there while laying on my back, staring into the sky, I would forget anything else for a moment.

Looking down the length of Zion Canyon last week on a trip into the southwest. I spent five days exploring and photographing the park. It was clear most of the week with only clouds on my last day.

The Undivided Mind and Collective Imagination.

"IF, as Carl Jung posited, we share a collective unconscious, then surely we share a collective imagination as well.

Individual epiphanies are almost never the source of insight. Breakthrough ideas are inherently social creations that come about after a period of maturation within the collective womb."
