    Some of Youtube sad economics
    • 96.5 percent of all of those trying to become YouTubers won’t make enough money off of advertising to crack the U.S. poverty line, according to an analysis by Mathias Bärtl, a professor at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences in Offenburg.

      Breaking into the top 3 percent of most-viewed channels could bring in advertising revenue of about $16,800 a year. That’s a bit more than the U.S. federal poverty line of $12,140 for a single person. (The guideline for a two-person household is $16,460.) The top 3 percent of video creators of all time in Bärtl’s sample attracted more than 1.4 million views per month. Bärtl used an income of $1 per 1,000 views for an average YouTuber to calculate his earnings estimates (actually it is optimistic for many channels!). In the U.S., the median hourly wage earned by actors is $18.70, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics

      People trying to make it on YouTube have long complained the company protects a handful of stars, promoting them at the expense of the masses struggling to break out (just check all trends and most recommended videos).

      The imbalance is huge and becoming worse, according to Bärtl’s research: In 2006 the top 3 percent accounted for 63 percent of all views. Ten years later, the top YouTubers received 9 in every 10 views, he found. The bottom 85 percent of those who started posting in 2016 got a maximum of 458 views per month.

      Since 2016 it became much, much worse, including all recent change of interface to reduce number of non trending videos.

    Apple want to slowly kill all non store apps, next step made
    • In June, we announced that all Mac software distributed outside the Mac App Store must be notarized by Apple in order to run by default on macOS Catalina. Starting February 3, 2020, all submitted software must meet the original notarization prerequisites.

      If you haven’t yet done so, upload your software to the notary service and review the developer log for warnings. These warnings will become errors starting February 3 and must be fixed in order to have your software notarized. Software notarized before February 3 will continue to run by default on macOS Catalina.

      As a reminder, all installer packages must be signed since they may contain executable code. In June, we announced that all Mac software distributed outside the Mac App Store must be notarized by Apple in order to run by default on macOS Catalina. In September, we temporarily adjusted the notarization prerequisites to make this transition easier and to protect users on macOS Catalina who continue to use older versions of software. Starting February 3, 2020, all submitted software must meet the original notarization prerequisites.

      This thing has nothing to do with security (like signing drivers in Windows had nothing to security, it just made huge blow to small developers and manufactures, everyone knows).

      But it has all to do with monopolist (in their OS niche) wanting to make everything store based and have their part from ALL, 100% software sales (will happen in next 1-2 years). As far as I heard Apple managers already discussed amount of money they will get.

      I strongly suggest any developer to leave Apple infrastructure to not be buried under this train wreck as it will happen in next 3 years.

    Capitalism: Fertility and economic causes
    • image

      Note that capitalism treats children as goods (future workers with specific costs to rise them), and families as production system to make such useful things. Issue is that developed countries ruling class decided that it is too expenses kind of production, better just import such goods or outsource the work.
