"Discussion videos are sprouting again, almost in time for spring, and the relentlessly cycling concept of old feeding new, death feeding birth, growth, change.
"Is everything dead now?" "Is it all over?" Are we doomed to watch 10,000 boring videos of someone just smiling and staring whilst we cry into all the cups of tea we made because someone told us to at the start of their video to create an air of friendliness when they can't make us a cup of tea themselves because they're on a screen and we haven't yet made screens that can pass tea through each other. Imagine the Skype calls then. They'd be so warm.
But like in The Matrix, we seem to be mesmerised by numbers and what they mean and why they're there. I mean Don & Paul might be the best YouTubers, but that doesn't mean little Johnny 12 subscribers isn't an accomplished and excellent young man. And everyone who has been a number has also been every previous number.
Diversity persists in the depths of YouTube with differing levels of official support. Naturally there's a uniformity of popular and commercialised content and faces looking to hook a key demographic, but there is always new and old and weird and dull, in pockets, in places.
The internet has always been full of crap. Life has always been full of crap. But like when you catch a pretty sunset when you walk to the shop to buy tampons or 70 packets of cheap noodles, the beautiful, wonderful things are out there.
YouTube hides a lot of things under the water, so if you want a nice fish you have to look for it, but trust me, there are clownfish and turtles and crabs and shrimp and mermaids down here.
So swim around."
