Musings of a Mildly Misanthropic Technologist.

Here we are at the fourth installment in the ongoing series where I list a bunch of of bizarre and eclectic of YouTube channels that I enjoy. The theme for this edition seems to be the algorithm sought to surprise me. I found many of these channels just clicking on random videos.

It's been... quite a year. I've probably watched more hours of YouTube this year than any other year. I updated my original list about halfway through the year so I figured I'd do one last update as the year winds out (at least in the US/Eastern time zone).

I recently found myself overcome by a brief spat of boredom. A general haze of nostalgia accompanied the boredom and it got me thinking of earlier days of the Internet. A number of mostly-forgotten fads came to mind, the web counter, the under construction gif, the best viewed with browser logo, and the venerable webcam. The webcam itself was an evolution of other, more pratical network connected cameras and they have continued to progress farther than I would have expected. A quick search of my archives revealed that I still had the very last frame captured from my webcam.

I know it's not particularly uncommon for web sites these days to drastically change things and in fact most people consider this a feature.

So I Heard You Like Videos

As a follow up to my Favorite Podcasts post, I figured I would talk a bit about my favorite Youtube channels. A while back I wrote a Flask app to take a bunch of different web services that I didn't feel like having accounts on and turning them into RSS feeds. In the case of Youtube I combine the RSS feeds of each channel into a single RSS feed that I subscribe to. This makes it a lot easier to keep up with the periodic deluge of videos without having to fool around with a bunch of bookmarks or having a Google account.
