MUD2MMO : Baudville or Is Online Entertainment Legitimate?
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.Originally Published May. 26th 2013
