For no particular reason (well, other than that I'm really, really sick of commercials), I didn't set up my TV after I moved in 2014. Haven't had a TV since.
In my experience, most people who eschew TV still watch and like moving pictures of some sort, however they get it. For example, I have a good friend who hasn't watched any TV since the 1970s, but he loves movies.
And sure enough, I've noticed that I sometimes get sucked in to power-watching YouTube videos one after the other, whether it's standup comics, amateur lens reviews, or binge-watching the world's limited supply of C.G.P. Grey videos one after another (see in particular his delightful explanation about how Americans elect a president, which, if you don't know all about the Electoral College yet, will boggle your reasonable, sensible mind). C.G.P. talks fast, which is one reason I like him. Most video moves too slowly for me.
A reader who works for YouTube recently sent links to two YouTube videos about YouTube:
She noted that her tip was not an official Google reachout; she just thought TOP readers might be interested. I was, anyway.
(I don't know what you think, but I think this is on-topic, because so many cameras shoot video now. I'm not a video shooter who uploads to YouTube—although I've done it once or twice—but that doesn't mean you aren't.)
