Your smart phone, computer and even the entire internet will operate just fine without Google, FaceCrap or the Twitterverse.
Is this about making audio books of non-copyright content? TIA!
Librivox has this production of the Federalist Papers. There are parts of this that could surely use a lot of improvement.
I think the proper way this should be handled (though it would be more work) would be that three Freepers - one person is Madison, one person is Hamilton, and one person is Jay.
Three well-placed Freepers could knock this out of the park doing it this way. And realistically, you don't actually need me to do it. But I would be happy to lend expertise to anyone who wanted it in whatever way necessary.
I mean, a one-person Federalist Papers would also be an improvement to someone with a great voice and the dedication to that much content.
You’re deluding yourself into thinking this is a game you can win. All they have to do is de-monitize your content, so you get no money for it regardless of how great it is or how many views it gets. Even if you don’t care because you just want to get your message out, Google does. A video that gets lots of views but doesn’t generate any revenue is by definition “not commercially viable”, so poof, away it goes.
- You need to generate a minimum level of content and get a minimum level of subscribers in order for your channel to be monetized.
- If your channel is not monetized then it will be less likely to be recommended. This will mean that only the people you contact directly via Facebook, FreeRepublic, etc. will know your videos exist.
- If YouTube doesn't like your content then they can place it in Parental Control or Reserved or Private status. This means it can't be seen from school, library, or other public computers.
- If you don't lock down comments, then your videos can be deleted if liberals use fake accounts to put nasty comments on your videos. However, if you do lock down comments then people tend to skip the videos. It's human nature to want to say something positive or negative after spending an hour or so watching a video.
That being said, it sounds like a good idea. It could be somewhat successful, but it will be a lot of effort for potentially little reward.
