Picture your life without YouTube. There are no funny cat videos, none of your favorite bloggers, and no blooper reel from that show you spent far too many hours watching. Nyan Cat never went viral and only five people have ever heard of Charlie the Unicorn. You never had that connection with the blogger who struck home with you and you never learned about Schrödinger's cat from that Minute Physics episode.
YouTube is at the center of a worldwide community for entertainment and education. It is a place where someone in Tokyo can see the same thing that someone in London can. It is a place where American culture can travel to Australia. It is a place that completely disregards location, age, race, interests, or anything else that may define a person. It is simply a place for sharing creation.
However, not everyone has the tools or knowledge necessary to create. There are times when someone is inspired to make something, but because of their lack of necessities, never get around to doing it. Luckily, YouTube has addressed this with their Creator Spaces. Named The YouTube Space, they are areas with all the equipment needed to make a video of most any genre. However, these spaces are only located in London and Los Angeles. Raise your hand if you don't live anywhere near there. Right. That's what I thought.
This specific petition is attempting to get a YouTube Space built in the Midwest part of the United States, specifically in the Toledo/Detroit area. Many YouTubers come from the Midwest, including vlogger Tyler Oakley and Vlogbrother's John Green. With little to no outlet for video projects, it isn't uncommon to find YouTubers emerge from this area, desperate for any way to get their word out there. Be it teachers or entertainers, the Midwest is champing at the bit.
This is a formal petition directed at the YouTube developers, proposing the construction of a YouTube Space for Midwest America. With this petition you will hopefully see the demand and act upon it. Do what you do best, and continue to assist us in building a worldwide culture.
