Maybe I'm a luddite. I recently stumbled across Casey Neistat's youtube channel. The guy's pretty good at this stuff.
I think part of what makes him so popular is his upbeat demeanor. He's friendly, open, polite. He's not putting on pretenses. He also has high energy and is always moving. People like those things. These are things that we all aspire to. He's also talented at video editing.
He's quite popular and it looks like half the people in NYC recognize him. He got a lot of coverage for his post about this gratis airline seat he recently snagged.
It's an amazing world we live in, when you can make a fine living posting videos to Youtube.
Of course, I'm dull and boring and I'd starve if I tried that.
