Ideological purity and intellectual arguments ALWAYS require massive and intentional effort and energy inserted into the system. It never shows up naturally or memetically. That's why strong ideologies are always counterculture.


Sounds like Libertarianism!

very smart marketing

most camgirls have such s***ty understanding of basic business practices, the ones who really get it can make a killing pretty easily imho


There appears to be a massive shift away from live performances to content creation. Mostly because the live performance websites still have to give away 70% of their earnings to the webhost (50% if it's a token site) and that they're super strict on any sort of marketing for other material. Basically, when you're running cam shows, you can't mention your twitter account, you can't mention content based websites where you sell your videos, it's pretty hard and cumbersome to sell your videos on the live-streaming site, and you definitely can't mention stuff like doing skype shows.

The other day, a friend of mine put up on her Twitter a poll about if she should do more content-based stuff on video sales websites and only live-stream 2-3 times a week, and I asked her why she was switching. She told me her check last month from the content-based website was double the one from her live-streaming check, and that she only put out one new video the whole month. And considering those content-based sites also offer the ability for users to pay a month fee to get access to a certain amount of videos, it probably would help her to put out consistent content on there to have a steady income and keep people subscribed for months at a time.

That's funny. One of the ones I know who has been highly successful (and is clearly also an escort) is going the other way. Taking down all content and doing live stuff only. I think she's worried about piracy or something? Not sure.

Recorded content is also less popular for the ones that highly value anonymity and aren't really full timers. Olivia quite famously never had ANY extra content at all.

Also all of those rules are almost entirely unenforced. On the sites I go to, girls spam their twitter and MV accounts constantly.

I'm sure streaming is better at a lower level but once you're popular enough premium videos become the way to go because you have all the demnd already

I guess that training didn't go out before the Arrested Development filming...

It makes sense that you would want to protect a multi million production from being totally ruined by something as stupid as sexual harassment, but none of this stuff seems to actually be helping. Is it so hard to just hire people who don't harass.

The other implication is that if someone follows all those rules but still harasses someone, then they have this defense of "I followed all the rules!" and it actually hurts openness.

30 minutes is a long video, but shorter than reading the book

This story is seriously amazing. This reporter is a legit hero. Lord knows how long she would have gotten away with this complete and total fraud if not for him.

How important is it that dumbass silicon valley VCs can sleep in peace really? (not to mention the fact that 90% of their portfolios are similar though less impressive scams)

I mean they were also selling phony blood tests to real, live, actual patients, freaking them out with false results and costing them thousands of dollars in follow-ups
