He was a minister, if I recall..
Seems like a pretty dangerous way to try to earn a "livelihood" to me. Maybe a real job to go along with preaching in a free church and marching along public streets?
False-dichotomy, false-dichotomy; wherefore dost thou come from, false-dichotomy?
If you look carefully (actually, not carefully at all), my comparison was between choosing a "livelihood" of social activism vs. getting a Real Job and expecting... I dunno, some larger entity to take care of us all (and since I'm thus presuming the absence of social activists, due to all of them having Real Jobs, that must be the gubmint). Youtube reaches a lot of people easily. Sure, there's Alternet. [eyeroll]
UPDATE (29 minutes later): actually, the social-activists I know use http://archive.org for their audio/video uploads.
NB: I have no idea as to the actual disposition of the person in the OP, did not click-through [shame, SHAME!].
Update (couple mins after the LAST update): okay, I clicked through-and-through. The person in question is not a social-activist by-trade, his [resume] says:
For the last eleven years I've been a writer and multimedia producer in
San Francisco. My professional experience includes everything from
technical writing to breaking news; live broadcast engineering to
documentary production; digital photography, compositing, illustration
and animation; and packaging, promoting and publishing content for
print, broadcast and online.
So, by doing at least some piece of social-activism and having a youtube 3-strikes-strike against his record, two more would lock his account (as I understand it) which serves as an online portfolio, thus damaging him professionaly (he's currently working as a freelancer. Which is a Real Job).
Yes, yes, caveat emptor, and all that.
NO MORE UPDATES FROM ME. srsly.
