The good news is that we're tracking stats, and have historical stuff to go off of to compare.
So I will absolutely (after we have enough data) either very publicly prove myself right, or very publicly prove myself absolutely wrong.
I want the best solution for you who makes video, bar none.
The part that people are missing is the more traffic we keep here, the more revenue we make against that (and other) videos, and the more revenue we can dump back into the NSTV producer program.
I don't want to block videos from facebook because I am selfish... I want to create a walled-off ski media environment where the people that make the videos get paid money.
However, fuck it... we'll just give some of that to Mark Z. and call it a day because we have more views on a few videos in the short term.
I seriously might be completely wrong though, and I'll be dead honest even if I am. Hell I hope I'm wrong, it'll be awesome if we can spike video views by a billion percent because nobody has to open a new tab in their browser to watch a video.
newschool is a state of mind, not a style of skiing.
