    Linus has setup a genuine professional company that makes Clip-Share video's. If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is.

      @Panos Linus addressed this problem when he started to talk about Floatplane. He don't want to be under the mercy of a giant corporation. So while at the moment he's under this platform, he is running a proper company and makes more money than most of us here, so now he's just trying to make a platform of his own to further guarantee his empire's continuation. It's not like people would leave youtube, but millions would join Floatplane just to watch his content. And that would bring others onto the platform as well. So I don't agree with the whole "if youtube stopped existing" deal.

    Linus and his team get a lot of shit, but he really is a leader in the space. And he's trying (through floatplane) to give not only his staff a plan b but also other creators if Clip-Share goes too much further to shit. He seems to be a pretty damn smart guy who has surrounded his self with other smart people. Whether you think he's a sellout or not I think he's done very well and is continuing to further their craft, and the fact that he's honest and trying to make ethical moves when not being forced to also speaks for itself. The state of "capitalism" these days employs basically no consumer protections. As long as you're making as much money as you can, who cares how you do it (at least that's how I see it). So them making an ethical "line in the sand" to me speaks highly of his character.

      Wow, it's always amazing when Clip-Share stops notifying you of comments on a post that got a lot of attention and then pops one up out of nowhere. Always, always, always, full of bs and trolling. Glad you clowns have been having fun, see you in another year (if that's the will of the algorithm). Later Dbags... Not you, you're cool.

    • Finland Journey
      Finland Journey 2 years ago

      Yeah and perhaps on Floatplane you wouldn't even need to wear a damn mask, which doesn't stop a virus cos it'll hit your eyes instead etc, so is nothing but virtue signaling.

    Defining the difference between the 'showcase' and 'review', was a very unexpected but very interesting part Linus told about.
    Not just showing a new building, but also talking about things that really matter, I like that.

    • Finland Journey
      Finland Journey 2 years ago

      Most people don't get the difference. Instead of showcase he should say "paid shilling".

      @Finland Journey Linus has had the same team for many years. The employees that have left LMG haven’t left due to conflict, but because they want to diversify. The fact LMG has a high retention rate speaks immensely to Linus’s character. Linus does act childish and bratty sometimes but he always comes around.

    It's interesting the contrast between Steve and others who visited the space. Mainly the relationship with Linus being so casual, but also the apparent attention to the detail and the whole "talking the same language" vibe I'm getting. Oh and the lack of music and aggressive editing makes it flow differently.
    I dunno. I love the vibe of this tour.

    • J D
      J D 6 months ago

      You're right, here in 2022, it's still far and away THE best studio tour video I've watched. I tried to watch the others that popped up on my recommendations, and I just can't stomach it. Nope.
      Steve asks questions like a truly engaged and curious individual (nothing to do with being smart, although it helps). And that's how I just didn't stop watching this video and I didn't even notice there was no weird background music or anything until another commenter mentioned it.

    • In Exile

      Steve asks questions like one company president would ask another - we are just witnesses. I love that

    this is probably the best of the inter-community tours I've seen. the casual, no bs tone is perfect. the behind the scenes look at the building but also at the decision making and process is fascinating. thanks for look behind the curtain.

    Linus is so genuinely happy hanging out with you in this video instead of being the ball of stress he usually is, and its so damn cute.

  • Colin Macdonald

    The final part where Linus refers to Steve as a saint was very sweet. The way Steve looked genuinely embarrassed reinforced my opinion of him as a genuine person.
    Thanks for your time guys.

    • Starstrike
      Starstrike 3 years ago +14

      @Vinicius Ribeiro Yes, however just adding writers doesn't always give you better content, that's the difference here. Linus is doing such a great job of running and expanding a team of excellence, that they keep producing great, and fun content.

    • Vinicius Ribeiro

      Writers man. That's the key for unstoppable content. That's why he is expanding even further in this area.

      I love both channels!
      I’ve been a fan of Linus for a while now and just recently discovered Gamers Nexus (as in a few minutes ago), along with a few other tech channels!
      It’s mostly because I want to give myself multiple perspectives on certain tech related things, but also because, it’s just cool!
      Everytime I see people dissing Linus, even if it’s for a good reason, It still gets under my skin! Same thing with any creator I like. And I don’t mean general dislike or whatever. I mean people actively spending their time to rain on people’s parades!
      I love Linus’ videos! But I will admit I have felt they haven’t quite offered enough balance in content lately. I don’t detest them by any means, it’s just I needed a few additional creators to get “tech tips” from (pun intended😋)
      Also, I’m really REALLY eager to get into the PC/Laptop building scene, mostly so I can build myself my own personal setup that is 100% just my art and videos! I make animation and while my iPad and MacBook (and iPhone) work great for what I need right now (especially my MacBook) and I don’t plan on replacing any of them, It also doubles as my work computer. And that’s not bad, but I want to have a second laptop and/or pc (maybe a hybrid of both?) that can be JUST for personal projects. I’ll still use my Apple devices for that stuff, but… having a setup that is COMPLETELY dedicated to making art, videos, maybe even games, etc. would be epic! (I’m planning on that laptop being a Framework Laptop due to it’s customizability and repairability, among other awesome things!)
      Anyway, I’m slowly saving up for said laptop and I’m gonna be using all these new channels, from Linus to Nexus, (along with instructions and the like) to help me in my Indie Creator Setup journey!!!

      Maximo M 10 months ago +1

      @Lapis Loaf Yeah, the casual masses happen to be the majority of the viewers and you can see that for yourself by looking at the view numbers.
      Linus knows this perfectly, and that's why most of his videos are scripted so specifically. It's a good strategy. And like I mentioned earlier, him looking dumb is an act for entertainment purposes (except when he drops something for real, which he exaggerates to further his persona). It's an effective act. People really do think he's a goofy fuck.

    • Lapis Loaf
      Lapis Loaf 10 months ago +3

      @Maximo M Short attention span audience? Maybe the casual masses, but my favourite content is the weekly podcast they do

    • Maximo M
      Maximo M Year ago +1

      @Carlos Ferrari This kind of video is not exactly great for Linus' short attention span audience.
      It looks personal and handcrafted (and not machine-y) because it's not very produced, but it is also very long and boring.
      When you're making really short, effective and efficient videos targeted at a wide demographic that tends to have a short attention span, it's hard not to make it look overly produced. Linus managed to do it, though, by using self deprecating humor. Not doing that would result in his videos looking professional, sure, but it'd also make his videos look "less human", so it's a decent trade off.
      To sum it up, Linus making himself look dumb is by design. Without that design, his videos would lose a lot of charm.

    • Carlos Ferrari
      Carlos Ferrari Year ago

      @Doppler Effect fair enough however this Gamers Nexus video is proof it can be well done and not look like a 'mindless machine'.

    21:22 I don't get how anybody could complain about this. There's nothing better for integrity and legitimacy of your reviews than non-tech sponsors, because obviously, every time your sponsored by a company from the same industry you make videos about, you automatically enter a moral conflict that's damaging your believability, no matter how subtle.
    I'm also very glad Linus takes sponsoring so seriously, that despite the "average consumer" not caring at all, he still is careful about how he makes sponsored content, as to not risk his integrity. It's great to hear that.

  • Muscleduck
    Muscleduck 3 years ago +34

    I think people actually care a lot about the difference between a spotlight and a review. I think it's admirable that you make this clear distinction between the 2. I never really noticed it consciously until you talked about it though, but it always felt that way subconsciously.
    ALso 'Kingpin, the overclocker'. Like Linus doesn't know who Kingpin is :-)

    • Finland Journey
      Finland Journey 2 years ago

      The reason you didn't make the distinction is cos most don't either. Linus is not using proper vocabulary here. Paid shilling or sponsored by would be far more fitting.

  • HashTagRealName
    HashTagRealName 3 years ago +78

    Conversation at 20:00ish onwards about separation of of editorial and advertising and difference between review and spotlight is great to hear. I agree with the way Linus handles that stuff and if he didn't do that I think their content would be unwatchable to me.

  • Ash
    Ash 3 years ago +717

    Linus' business or businesses are really successful but I think what I respect about him most is that he reinvests all the money made. Be it something like this in the form of buying space so their production workflow is easier, or human costs like on their live show he said has all of his staff in a position where they all own their houses. My point being his businesses make money but he doesn't horde it. It's reinvested into the businesses or the people that power them. I have a ton of respect for that. This was so interesting! :)

    • ForeverMasterless

      He honestly seems like a great boss and a wonderful human being.

    • Storm
      Storm 3 years ago +4

      Not only that, but he is fully self invested into it which is so crucial for a real business. I had a boss who has an indie company and he was there in the beginning but when he got reliable people he just up and left. After the reliable people left all hell broke loose because he actually had to work there again. I came back to manage for the summer and I saw him maybe 4 times. That place has so much potential but the boss has so little drive.

      What I always wonder is why does LTT have so many employees and such a big workplace? Just making Clip-Share videos? Seems excessive.

    • outsideredge
      outsideredge 3 years ago +12

      Buying all Red cameras and the top notch editing PCs and gear, motorized stand-up tables, the fancy gaming chairs... none of those things are cheap, but those are also things you can justify if you think it'll make the workflow better, easier, more comfortable, etc. The most impressive thing to me is the investments in his people that don't have a business case. That lounge, that LAN gaming setup, that tricked out custom arcade cabinet...I can't think of many bosses who would invest in things like that. But that shows you how much he cares about his people and that he doesn't just view them as cogs in his machine.

    This is one the best videos I have ever seen! It goes to show that Clip-Sharers aren't just competing in order to get more subscribers to earn more but some of them are actually friends working together to improve not just the industry but also their viewers' knowledge (and perhaps skills) about something, in this case, technology. Kudos to Steve and Co. as well as to LMG for their great contributions.

    Linus went from like the back room of a warehouse to literally a state of the art studio. Insane.

      @Going Dark They're saying they're below average I believe. Their thought processes are different to us normies.

    • Going Dark
      Going Dark 3 years ago

      @Salad Fingers That's very true.. Kind of what I was trying to say I guess. It's easy to feel smart when you're surrounded by idiots.. Being smarter than the people around you can feel isolating but that doesn't mean you're special, it just means you need to find like minded people to spend your time with..

    • Salad Fingers
      Salad Fingers 3 years ago

      @Going Dark To be fair, though, there are more idiots than intelligent people out there. Sometimes you just think that maybe you're above average just for the simple fact that you're fairly intelligent. That or just meeting all the wrong people :P

    • Going Dark
      Going Dark 3 years ago +4

      @nem tudom Oh please 🙄
      ..You aren't nearly as special as you think you are. Your comment about the "way your brain works" sounds a bit conceded to be honest.. I don't think your brain works that differently. I think you're just a fairly intelligent individual in an environment of mostly below average individuals. You are just isolated.. You think you're different because you don't communicate and share intimate information with other intelligent people. If you did, you'd probably find you have more in common with people than you think.
      Not trying to insult you, just pointing it out as advice.. If it makes you feel any better, I have the same issues. It's a symptom of modern technology. Our phones have isolated us and rendered us incapable of normal communicative behavior, leaving us trapped in our heads with our thoughts, it's unhealthy.. Find some friends who aren't idiots and share things with each other. You'd be amazed at how similar we all are..

    It's amazing to see how far did they go. From making videos for a hardware store to a full house and then a big studio ... it's also amazing to see that this is only thanks to his talent and the work that he did and that he give to us for free. Make me feel bad not to sub to floatplane ... but well it's only 3$ not that expensive for the quality content that we have

    I absolutely loved this vid... Not for the info or the tour but more the way you did the 'interview / tour'.
    A lot of people in this community would put themselves kinda first but you really are interested and put yourself into the background and leave (in this case) Linus talking. But not just talking... A little more adapted to your level of your channel.
    I really enjoy seeing the respect going both ways.
    Thank you for that and the awesome content you (and Linus) are putting out there. Very much appreciated!
    Greetings from a Dutch Photographer and techjunkie.

  • Simonas Petronis
    Simonas Petronis 3 years ago

    It's really amazing seeing where LTT began and where it is now. Linus may have his haters (I once had begun disliking his videos because they are "simple"), but he has great attention to detail, seems to still be passionate about what he does, seems to still be a normal-ish person and not insufferable to be around. His videos may be not as deep as GN's, but they are edutainment - the Top Gear (Clarkson era) of the tech world. And that's good - it attracts people to the tech, teaches them some basics and then they may or may not move on to deeper dive channels - again, like GN.
    GN is doing great as well, good seeing you moving forward and improving things. Good luck to you both and hopefully we see more collaborations.

  • Dhysk

    I for one am really glad to see sponsers and revenue for both channels increasing. I enjoy content from both channels and I want to see good tech voices do well. It's always the vocal minority that complain about "selling out" but I think most of your audience understand a business has to be run. I can also see in reviews, normal content, and in how candid you are about the monetary side; that your integrity is intact.
    So as long as integrity is intact I hope you both sell out. Sell out of stock for merch, and sell out every sponsor spot that you have.

    The talk about sponsorships and how LMG deals with it day-to-day actually gives a lot of insight into Linus' perspective on the RAID Shadow Legends thing some people got bent out of shape over. Having enough employees to compartmentalize certain aspects of your business is not just efficient, but a logical way of doing business.
