Its amazing that renetto is still posting regular 15+ minute videos (or has been for months now0, happy (i guess?) with around a thousand views at best on them. this is basically where his site "vloggerheads" went in terms of viewership as well.
i guess he's still married to his wife? he went through more than one mid-life crisis in the past 7 years.

me too. what's amazing is that we got to be front row witnesses to it maturing. its hard to remember now what the internet was like in, say, 2002. by 2002 i thought the internet was getting pretty mature because it was a long way from 1995, but in 2002 there was (1) no facebook, (2) no myspace, (3) no twitter, (4) no reliable streaming video, (5) no smartphones, and (5) blogging was in its infancy. though i didn't use IRC back in 2002, it was vibrant back then, as were forums.
i think that the next ten years of the internet can't be as innovative as the last ten, because i can't think of any new innovation that the internet doesn't yet have. e.g., movies completely transformed from 1927-1937 with the birth of sound films, but since the late 1930s the genre has only improved incrementally.
You might be right about that. I can see things changing and morphing a little, but hand-held devices were really the big game changer and I can't imagine yet another way to receive the internet that is more convenient. It is pretty amazing to have witnessed it unfold, sort of like how our parents and grandparents did with TV.
I think the next big thing will be smell-o-vision. You'll finally be able to sniff your favorite YouTubers.
Okay, actually I believe the next big thing will be privacy. You can start to see the pendulum swinging back now. People are realizing just how much and how easy it is to dig up massive amounts of information on people and how easy it is not just for governments but for regular old people to track and monitor people.
