A decade and tens of thousands of dollars later, LTT looks way better and much more professional.

I used to frequent TigerDirect when Linus was at NCIX(sorry) for funny commentary that later formed 'the Tek'. It must be difficult to compete in the mainstream at this level.

I think there is more to it. Logan still works for the employer at the same company - this dude made it out, whether by himself or not, he is kind of his own employer. It must be a success, or it wouldn't be him at the spotlight.

Getting a large mass of subscribers isn't something just "anybody" can do by virtue of statistics.

Too much of their stuff is just too sophomoric. This just hurts the brain:

Being successful and having that kind of subscriber count spread out in so many countries isn't easy, but he did it. If he was also able to get strong backers, that's good business sense too.
