the alternative to YouTube is text

video is one of the most expensive, most privileged, most inaccessible ways of spreading ideas

it has always been a medium where the rich have controlled what the rest of us see

@rey @mcpaccard Disagree. The cost to produce may be higher (though these days would mean a cheap <$100 camera and a free internet connection), but people can naturally express themselves as themselves. Writing is intimidating for many. I've seen storytellers flourish on video that would have never attempted publishing the written word.
