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.

 

Weird thing is there’s not one thing I’m famous for really. I had a lot of Vine followers, as I get most places except youtube. But that’s because I follow people in a kind of algorithmic way (I follow people who are unpopular, I give moral support, they usually follow me back and my followers grow to thousands. I didn’t do it on Youtube because I don’t want to put effort in making a good channel).
 
Once, Google had me as President of Earth Fact from May 2015 – around January 2016. That was fun. I didn’t even try, although I might have unconsciously from doing SEO way back.
 
Anyway,
