YouTubers are getting rich from ad revenue, right? Jack Conte's video catalog gets a million hits per month, and that generates less than $50 of ad revenue to help him pay the bills. As an independent musician (and the balder, less attractive half of indie duo Pomplamoose), Jack will be telling us about his robotic music video projects, the currently broken content monetization systems, and the emergence of the Creative Middle Class. If you don't like art (or puppies, or candy... just saying....) then come to learn about Jack's recent startup, Patreon, and its mission to make small business creativity a sustainable endeavor.
