I am become a YouTube snob. Perhaps that's not completely accurate as I think I have always been a YouTube snob. Over the years I have joined the ranks of those who have figured out that anything you want to do has been done previously, and video recorded by someone else ready to teach you how to do it. And that, in our complicated technological world is a very good thing. Until it isn't. Like any form of communication YouTube has great value for the things it is good at: in this case simple linear technical explanations. Were you to need to learn how to change a car light bulb or how to remove window shades without tearing down the plaster ( I speak from experience here) YouTube is excellent. but when it comes to more complex trains of thought, the nuanced life as it were, YouTube gets pretty grubby. I had better explain. But be warned this may turn into a rant. If you disagree feel free to comment.
