A video like this could not thrive on TikTok, Instagram Reels, or even Facebook for that matter. This is my attempt to explain what's good about YouTube, and to encourage decisions within YouTube's leadership to consider leaving a bit of money on the table in favor of protecting the beautiful cathedral that they have created for us. Following the short-term numbers will destroy the beautiful thing you have created, but if you stay the course and stay true to Your Voice, I believe the fact that Educational content thrives here on YouTube will ultimately make you win in the end. Thank you to those who work at YouTube for making a platform where beautiful things like this can exist. The challenge now is to fight to keep it this way, when the siren song of more dollars is no doubt trying to pull you away from that which is good.

Thanks for this thoughtful video Destin. I am constantly reminded of how ‘the medium is the message’ which makes me wonder what is the real message of YouTube? I think for a long time the message of YouTube has been in depth, quality content, which contrasts with other social media platforms. Like you I hope they keep it this way and don’t keep trying to copy every other platform out there. What I love about your work is you’ve never lost your voice. Thanks for using your voice for good on here.

@Mikołaj P. Chill bro. Are you basing this all off of his electricity video? He even just released a new video about electricity addressing it. Plus if you were in his situation and you could make a lot more money by making slightly clickbaity titles, I guarantee you'd consider it and probably do it. And yes it's easy to say you wouldn't when you'll never be in that situation.

It's funny that Derek says that, while spiraling into clickbaitiness and half truths. Harsh? Maybe. Please do mind you now have youtubers spending time on correcting falsehoods of your videos. Not simplifications - falsehoods. If you follow current path, you're becoming the Dan Brown of popular science. Exactly because of bowing to the algorithm god.

20:59 - This isn't surprising to me, and it's why YT is still my fave platform after 13 years of use. Even with its changes over the years (most of which I haven't really liked), it's better than any other video/social platform. I have learned *so much,* and I've enjoyed learning it!

YouTube is by far the best platform for educational content along with engaging comments. It's sad to see a whole new generation wasting their precious time and mind watching 10 second long brain-dead TikTok videos all day long with little to no educational value. It's fine for a few minutes of entertainment now and then, but frankly it's just a bunch of BS from what I've seen.

Very interesting to have Mathieu helping Destin with this project. Besides that Mathieu, I bought an Edixa Mat Reflex model d after viewing your work. I need to restore it because it has not been stored in ideal conditions and oxidation has taken its toll on the mechanism and gears, it's a long project, but I'm hopeful I'll be able to take pictures with it again. Memory is also about being able to use old cameras that captured special moments in the lives of people we will never know and I find that so fascinating. Salutations de Montréal et je vais probablement prendre des photos à chaque étape de ma restauration, même si je suis novice comparé à toi.

Making facinating subjects accessible and adding a level of unobstuctive entertainment is a massively effective delivery. You do an incredible job. Smarter Every Day is an example of the good things online communication has to offer and I wish you nothing but the best.

Fighting platform algorithms is ultimately a losing battle. YouTube controls the algorithms, so they directly influence who's watched & shared more/less, and who's monetized/demonetized. Ultimately the answer is to look for alternative platforms, like @RealEngineering has done. Vote with you feet and your wallet (and your mouse/fingers/stylus). If you choose to diversify or move, the people who matter will follow you (that's what 'follower' used to mean).

After the disappearance of the dislike counter it's clearly harder to see yt in such a positive light, but i think that the overall message is still extremely important AND relevant, all content producers should take this message to heart, if they didn't already by themselves. God bless you Destin, never change.

Fascinating and a little initially depressing to see all these sights swarming with people where they were not so much 100 years ago. I wonder if that is down to population growth of the shrinking globe brought about by cheaper air travel. Then I see your bit about actually experiencing these places in the flesh, and I realise that yes, they may not look as pristine, and spacious, but they were built to be enjoyed in person, not simply seen in photographs, and I realise that even though they are disfigured by the swarms of people, the democratisation of international tourism has enabled these places to be enjoyed as they were designed to be enjoyed.

As a traditional blacksmith when I first uploaded to YouTube, one of my first comments was from a professor who said " this is a great example. It's not not the strongest or the smartest that survive but the ones that are most adaptable". I've never forgot what he said. I've since moved from being traditionalist and embraced all technology no matter how modern and ever changing in order to not just survive but to thrive. I'll never forget the journey and I'll always love and appreciate the traditional skills but I think change is not only good but necessary. Thank you so much for sharing your journey. Cheers J

@Novantico yes in a way I can do more projects for enjoyment as not everything I do has to earn money. When I was stubbornly trying to hold on to my identity as a traditional craftsman I was actually really unhappy and maybe even depressed. Letting go and adapting was actually very freeing. I now tend to think most things that are good are to be enjoyed for a time but not to be held onto too tight because when change happens it is very painful, but if you embrace change then it can be exciting entering into something new.

@Joshua De Lisle I imagine it also gives you the breathing room to be able to practice whatever traditional work you like to on the side or for particular projects/needs/fun and such too. There's that bit of sadness that comes with needing to give in to the future and change, but as long as you can find some time (should you event want it) to do things however you want to sometimes, I think that can be good too.

@Marino Hernandez using technology for marketing such as YouTube itself is one. Using CAD software and using CNC laser cutting for most of my parts prior to forging is extremely efficient. Using modern welding equipment instead of traditional joinery has opened a hole area of work and that is very profitable that I couldn't access if I remained traditional. I've even built my own power hammer and about to build my own CNC plasma table. I started off wanting to be a purist traditional blacksmith but failed to make it sustainable and so adapting and embracing change has really benefited me and helped provide services to a greater amount of people by making metal work more efficiently.

Very good points. To add to the conversation, I'm not a fan of the dislike button no longer showing the count either. Now it's harder to sort through tutorial videos. I learn how to do some household tasks like change outlets here on YouTube. Now I can't tell if the video is clickbait, low quality, or if everyone got electrocuted unless I read the comments in every video. The problem is, content creators can turn the comments OFF. So now people here on YouTube can curate a well crafted lie for watch time, and even propaganda can flourish now. I think they're creating a monster without even realizing it. The YouTube shorts are only going to exacerbate this downward trend too.

Love this, and thank you for your constant quest to gather and then share knowledge.   Your comment about "what does this mean for future generations" got me thinking of another bad YouTuber trend where they may purposely misstate, mispronounce, or misspell things in order to garner interaction by people jumping to correct them, which boosts the algorithm, gets more promotion, and gets more views. Yes, it creates engagement but it's the wrong kind of engagement, and the more you repeat an incorrect thing the more likely it is to be accepted as normal. Over time, gaming the system in that way to get more views or engagement like that can actually hurt future generations. Anyway, I like that you're concerned about the legacy of your voice, and not just how far it carries. :)

I also don't like how they removed the dislike button. It's going down the path of the other platforms that also don't have dislikes. It really provides a good measure of whether a video is actually good or bad.

@Miner47000 if something was uploaded that was a scam, I would find out - odd as it may seem, I actually enjoy thinking for myself - if something sounds outrageous, I check its veracity, anything fake will soon be shown up

@Chris S What if there was something posted that was a scam or something like that, removing dislikes removes the ability to easily see if something is fake. Not the only example but that is one way that it was useful, besides I just have a chrome extension now lol

@kuinks for your information i give most things a chance, but if you are doing research and dont have that much time to find something that can help you it's good to have a way to tell if the source is reliable, spam is a problem same with scams, sometime relieing on others is a good thing, some times its bad to have your own opinion or give something a chance because you may realize that it was a waist of time. should i apply your logic to other sites. oh let's remove the review system on amazon and keep the 5 star rating because everyone should give the product a chance, or how about let me spend 10 dollars to watch this bad rated movie and then realize that it was a waist of time and i should have listen to the reviews. learn to take criticism and stuff. not everyone has the time to watch everything and so the dislikes are good to tell if you should spend time with this video. instead of being mad that you get dislikes and just want people to like your videos. how about make good videos or be glad that some people like your video. your not going to get everyone to like your stuff or others peoples stuff.

A very fascinating video!!!! The power of the “Voice” is amazing!! Thanks for your version/vision of voice….. You hit a major point I have thought of often. The “short” version… I watch Utube because I have the choice to go in-depth on a subject and think about it. It provides many opinions and points of view. That’s the short part. But it also allows you to think about it and make your own choice. That’s the long part. At least for me… Thanks again for the video!!! Definitely a change of pace!!! Keep your voice!!!! Please!!!! In this point in time too many are content with letting others “Voice” for them……

I'm SOOOO HAPPY! I was able to go to Paris before the Notre Dame fire and was able to see it inside and out. One of the best parts was feeding pigeons outside the cathedral with my wife. It really is a special place of European culture and history and it should absolutely be preserved as close to original as possible.

I think there are a few places where they actually managed to find the right balance between "keep it as original as possible", which in my opinion should be the first goal for such a historic building, and on the other hand, put in whatever is needed to acomodate large numbers of visitors. And to be fair, some change (minor ones) is ok. It is not like nothing ever changed in the 900 years before based on needs and new technology (I guess the building initially had nothing prepared to put in electric wires etc., lights, heating, whatever)

I love the point of your video, its exactly what i experience youtube to be evolving towards (if not derailed by leadership), improving in quality with a lot of educational content. Hope it keeps going that way! I don't care about shorts. I do want to say however, that what now looks ancient and holy was just the Disney Land of its own time following the urge to sell from the most successful company of all times, i.e. the church.

Thanks for this video as a whole though. shaving myself down to fit, trying to capture my works that would get the best response, only taking photos that would gather the most likes is what made me quit social media, that and being fed a steady diet of ideas to confirm my own bias.

I'm really glad you resist the temptation to make videos longer. I always watch Youtube in a set timeslot, during dinner, or in weekends during breakfast. If a video is too long, I initially put them in a separate playlist (literally just called 'long videos'), but I even stopped doing that because I realized I will just never watch them.
