RAW FEED: Vidme is Dead, Long Live Our Benevolent-ish YouTube Overlords
So I got an email from the Vidme team the other week, saying hey, we’re closing the site down, all your videos will be deleted.
You might think there’d be wailing and gnashing of teeth but, you know, we’ve been here before.
Some of us on several occasions.
So let’s talk about online video sites, why $9.2 million is a drop in the ocean compared to hosting and bandwidth costs, and why we should all just bow before our inevitable GinoromoCorp Overlords (hi Alphabet).
