Before we get to the point of today’s topic, let me tell you a story: Much has been made about PewDiePie. For the six of you who are unaware, PewDiePie is the screen name of Felix Kjellberg, a Swedish YouTuber who gained fame with his Let’s Plays, where he plays a video game and overlays it with his commentary. I’m not a fan – I think he’s too loud, nonsensical, and his sense of humor a bit too obnoxious for my tastes, but I respect what he’s been able to build, and off so little. After dropping out of college, and his parents refusing to loan him any more money as a result, Kjellberg had to work small jobs to fund his online work.
And then he didn’t.
