Youtube. It's not something Patrick or I grew up with. In fact, until 5 years ago or so, it wasn't even something we were too distracted by or invested in. It wasn't something we watched for entertainment as teens or kids, a profession in Youtube wasn't something that was on any career aptitude test for our generation (is it now? it probably should be!) and it wasn't something we discussed our approach to before or even right after we had kids. It wasn't something we realized would become so much a part of daily life.
