Is it just me or has the finding good videos on YouTube become increasingly difficult?

The process of searching for and finding one good video usually requires that you wade through a swamp of spammy, crude, sleezy, or just plain dumb videos that are ever so prevalent on the site.

I really like YouTube, don’t get me wrong, but I haven’t been as happy with it lately as I once was.

YouTube’s recent UI changes have made it worse, not better. The “social” organization is much worse than the “popular” organization in my opinion, especially since I don’t have as friends the type of people that are super active on YouTube.

So I’m left with crude or dumb videos that act as a pay-wall (it costs a lot of time and frustration) to the good videos.

Maybe I’ll try to start a site that just has the good stuff.

Not a bad idea…
