Here is my first shot at creating a liberal version of right wing talk show hosts. Short of Dr. Strangelove's version of The Colbert Report.
I have close to 500,000 total views on YouTube (admittedly, mostly due to one video of my aquarium shaking during an earthquake), a rather cool name (Dr. Strangelove), a few books authored (but none that make any real cash), and 20 years of experience in self-publishing on the Internet, so how do I cash in on my modest knowledge of the Internet?
Seventeen years ago I started one of Canada's first Internet companies (fun, hell, divorce, bankruptcy).
Time to try something
After writing a book about the anti-capitalist use of the Internet (The Empire of Mind) and another about amateur video (Watching YouTube), it is odd to find myself offered monitization of one of my YouTube channels -- Autovideography.
YouTube's system seems to be slow on the uptake of such channels, as I already have 30,000 views there (missed revenue opportunity).

The 32G version is selling for $150 at BestBuy, but the reason it is steeply discounted is that HP just drop its entire line of tablets. Still, the product reviews speak well of the tablet and the price is unbeatable. I can see no reason why not to get it at a discount and play with it for a few years.
Any dissenting opinions before I click "buy"?
(The Globe and Mail noted today that BestBuy has unloaded only 10% of its inventory of this product).
