In your local talent show, the best performances typically win prizes. Good performances are rewarded with affirmation from the crowd. Mediocre performances typically are forgotten. Bad performances are awkward and should never be repeated. Unless of course the performance is SO bad that it becomes the talk of the night.

YouTube is a worldwide talent show. People with the best videos are rewarded with lucrative contracts, celebrity, and money. Those with good videos receive attention and affirmation from the YouTube community. Users who post mediocre videos receive practically nothing. Bad videos are watched by very few unless they are so bad that people can't help but watch them over and over again.

What is your talent?

Do that thing you do.
