One of our recurring jokes at The Verge is that every YouTuber eventually
makes a video where they talk about how mad they are at YouTube. Whether it’s
demonetization or copyright strikes or just the algorithm changing, YouTubers
have to contend with a big platform that has a lot of power over their
business, and they often don’t have the leverage to push back.  On this
episode of Decoder, I’m talking to Dave Wiskus, the CEO of two really
interesting companies: one is called Standard, which is a management company
for YouTubers, and the other is Nebula, an alternative paid streaming platform
where creators can post videos, take a direct cut of the revenue, and
generally fund work that might get lost on YouTube.  What really stood out to
me here is that Dave is in the business of making things: this conversation
was really grounded in the reality of the creator business as it exists today
and how that real business can support real people. You’ll hear it when we
talk about Web3 and NFTs a little bit — Dave just thinks that stuff is
bullshit, and he says so because it’s not a business that exists now. That’s
an important dynamic to think about — and one for more platforms to take
seriously. Links: Dave's subscriber tweet Nebula Transcript: Credits: Decoder is a production of The
