YouTube Restored


Thanks to some behind-the-scenes help by a generous Google employee, the Crash Restraint YouTube channel has been restored; so for those of you asking after some of my old pre-Vimeo videos, they're all available again now!

I have to admit that this leaves me with some very mixed feelings; on the one hand, if anything it strengthens my convinction in the problematic nature of YouTube's violations appeal process. On the other hand, it demonstrates maybe one of the few forces that can combat the tendency of large corporations to steamroll everything in their path -- namely that the bigger an organization is, the more likely there is to be an internal advocate who cares about some particular cause; and that at least in some cases, those people can make a difference.
