Today's video of the day is from Great Big Story and is about a man in Seoul who can balance anything, and we mean anything. As always, Great Big Story delivers a well put together video with an interesting character that keeps you watching the whole time. More interesting is that this video is part of a new series from Great Big Story about the characters of the streets of Seoul. This series is a great example of how you can find a concept and just repeat it over and over again as long as you continue to find good characters and good stories.

This kind of thing is exactly what you want if you are looking to start your own channel: a repeatable concept that works every time. This way you are able to turn videos around quickly and you can find a dedicated audience.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
