Discovery on YouTube is Lame

Is it just me or has the finding good videos on YouTube become increasingly difficult?

The process of searching for and finding one good video usually requires that you wade through a swamp of spammy, crude, sleezy, or just plain dumb videos that are ever so prevalent on the site.

I really like YouTube, don’t get me wrong, but I haven’t been as happy with it lately as I once was.

YouTube’s recent UI changes have made it worse, not better. The “social” organization is much worse than the “popular” organization in my opinion, especially since I don’t have as friends the type of people that are super active on YouTube.

So I’m left with crude or dumb videos that act as a pay-wall (it costs a lot of time and frustration) to the good videos.

Maybe I’ll try to start a site that just has the good stuff.

Not a bad idea…
