“thought, 'well, what am I supposed to do, now that I hit a million views? How am I supposed to conceptualize that? What is this YouTube thing anyways, that was once a repository for cute cat videos? What does it mean to have a million views on it?' So I really started to think about it, because there were a lot of people commentating, as well, and they were into the lectures and following them avidly. I thought, 'OK, so what is this YouTube, exactly?' I thought, 'well, for the first time in human history, the spoken word has the same reach as the written word. And not only that: no lagged publication and no barrier to entry.' That’s a major technological revolution. That’s a Gutenberg revolution. That’s a big deal. This is a game changer. It was soon after that that I discovered the podcast world, which is about 10 times as big as the YouTube world. The podcast world is also a Gutenberg revolution, except it’s even more extensive.”
