It’s funny to me that Google has decided Youtube is best served by removing the dislike button. Google doesn’t seem to realize they always had access to a better option, a more future-proof one. Google should actually have pulled what Facebook tried to, enforcing a “no pseudonym” rule aside from on a case by case basis. It would’ve been easier to implement that than basically ruin Youtube as a service, which was the road they actually took.

I was thinking today; “How exactly is someone supposed to determine the quality of the content they’re consuming if they can’t at least monitor the input of people who watched it prior?”

In any case, these meandering thoughts were just accompanied by the whole “lrn2google” movement. They seem to think that they’re getting gold from the search giant, which simply isn’t true anymore.
