    Hank Green has a good take on it: I Think I Liked YouTube Rewind, Actually His take is essentially that YouTube is not one unified community, but a large platform on which many disparate communities are built, and that Rewind 2019 reflects that by highlighting the diversity of YouTube.

    I love this channel. While he can be a bit snobbish in his take downs, he also lays out of lot of good historical information and background. The best videos are when he reviews a film or tv show he likes, like Waterloo, Apollo 13, or The Terror. The Apollo 13 video is practically a documentary about the Space Race.

    This is a big step for Rocket Lab. Getting the booster through reentry without a reentry burn was the big hurdle to Electron reuse. Now they can work on catching them. Congratulations Rocket Lab!

    That's ambitious to launch two shows in parallel like that.

    ConcernedApe wasn't kidding when he called this the Everything Update. I can't wait to try all this stuff out. The bundle indicator will save a lot of time running to the community center to check.

    That example post brings up something else. It was edited after voting was locked. In this case it was a benign edit to update video links. But someone could abuse this by editing in a message that the original voters don't agree with. The same thing can be done on reddit, and doesn't seem to be much of a problem there (that I'm aware of). There are some differences between there and here, though. Posts on reddit take six months to be archived, by which time the vast majority of posts will rarely be seen again. The 30 day limit here is fresher, and because of the activity sort old posts can come back to the front.

    I think this was a great start. I love the world building, the races, cultures, politics, etc. In the extra features Travis Beacham says he's been building it up over time since he was in college. The characters are well fleshed out with strong personalities and motivations. Season 1 was a well crafted arc that built to a good season conclusion, while setting the stage for the rest of the series to come.

    This is a fun variation on the normal Legal Eagle format. I hope he does more of these story telling videos.

    As for the case, I agree with the verdict. As much as it sucks to be sued by someone who was robbing them, major bodily harm is a disproportionate response to a situation where their life wasn't in danger.

    Contrast that with the South African flamethrower car: youtube.com/watch?v=aLhWzMOccTg In that case the owner is in the vehicle with their life threatened, and they have to choose to hit the switch so it's not an indiscriminate trap.
