    This is really cool. Ironically—in a very “Humans of Late Capitalism” sort of way—my video got interrupted with a suggestion to watch the trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes. It was annoying.

    • Sorry you had to deal with an intrusive advertisement. It’s a deliberate strategy on the part of marketers to rob us of as much of our own independent perception as possible. I can’t remember if it was to your group or not, but I do recall saying recently that it has become impossible even to use a public toilet without having stair at advertising copy and the bottom of the bowl. A truly unfortunate state of affairs. I won’t say more at present, but we will most certainly pursue this topic at greater length in the future.

      That same thing happened to me too. I wasn’t sure if youtube was trying to pull me in to watching more videos with my personal preferences, but apparently not.

      • YouTube is trying to assimilate your attention as much as any other technology out there. Consequently, we need to use it consciously and critically. Trust me, these interruptions and lures drives me crazy too.
