I know, I know... and we're finally going to fold on this issue.
TBH its just so silly to me that people want to take views and traffic AWAY from sites that support skiing, and give them to rich fuckers like Mark Z in California. I mean jesus, does he need MORE money?
In every other aspect of the sport, people say support the companies that support skiing... they buy the smaller ski brands, they wear the core outerwear.... absolutely everything except technology.
All of a sudden when it comes to technology, everyone wants to stay off of NS and get their views into the hands of Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook... you name it. I mean I understand that those things are very good pieces of technology - I really do.
I just don't get it why there is such an incredible desire from the core people in the sport to give our media views and internet traffic away to these behemoths. I mean these guys are fucking beyond rich.
Regardless, we're going to make the NS player play on Facebook. Too many media people and brands cite this as the primary reason they will never upload or share Newschoolers video on facebook.
As bugs bunny used to say, if you can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em.
One day when the people who have given all of their views away to the big sites and gotten nothing in return start to realize they lost their businesses... I'll be proven right.
newschool is a state of mind, not a style of skiing.
