Thanks! I’m proud of that one, especially how the cat turned out. Most of my youtube stuff is crap, random ideas poorly executed. But I liked that one.
Ah that. Online since 89, always checking out new stuff. Early 00s, Google had “knol” and deep on an experiment page was a little paragraph about sending them ID verification.
This was probably 2003-ish.
Google Talk / Circles / Plus came out around 2010/2011, and I had a checkmark by my name.
Then they bought Youtube. My verified stayed.
So, it had nothing to do with Youtube performance but an ancient Google name verification experiment I stumbled on long ago.
Here’s a new one a friend showed me about two weeks ago – it wasn’t there before:
Google Kenneth Udut
This blew my mind a bit – and I’m fine with it.
