What do you think the internet would be like if YouTube shutdown?

I had this thought that we all get sucked into the YouTube from time to time. But what would the internet feel like if it shutdown forever?

Maybe I’m a bit sentimental, but I keep dreaming about the times when I had to wait for a week/month/year(s) for a song to be played on the radio and felt super lucky when I managed to record it on a casette tape. Same for video clips on the television. I know there’s a lot of benefits of YouTube as a platform but I also think it just killed the joy and has completely devalued video clips/live shows for me. Personally I’d be happy living without YouTube.


I think YouTube is an amazing resource. Even if 99.9% of the content is garbage, the 0.1% makes it worthwhile.
If it didn’t exist, I’d find other ways to waste my time.
