MUD2MMO : Baudville or Is Online Entertainment Legitimate?

Snappy patter and jokes, he knows what pleases the folks.

by   

I was talking with a friend of mine early in the week about the "news of the week".  If you're not a youtube contributor you may not be aware of the "ALL OF THE THINGS" moments that sometimes happens.  But in the span of a week or so, Nintendo made a grab for monetization, Microsoft insulted the gaming community, blip made a move against ad blockers and content creators defended it with "we need the money".  The latter is still rolling, and not going all too well.

But I said one thing that was enough to get my friend to badger me into making a show about it.  I likened the online video community to "Vaudeville".  And, well, this video is the result.  Feedback is, as always, welcomed and encouraged.

    I haven't watched cable in... god I always forget how long its been... four years? Something like that. The only things I watch are on Netflix, Twitch or Youtube. That's it. I absolutely agree, internet entertainment from people like us is taking over, or at least soon. I just watched some of the League of Legends All-Stars last night, just the qualifiers, not even the big match and there were 90000 people watching on Twitch. Do most cable TV shows even get that number?

    Across a nation, sure. But honestly, 90K viewers are an impact. And it's just a matter of time. It's going to be a question of who's on board when it goes, and if the "old school" thinking is what holds it back or not.
