CuriousInventor [Scott Driscoll]  is creating Video Explanations of Technology

$5

I love trying to get down to the core of how to do something, or how something works. What exactly is going on inside that Rubik's cube that lets all of those blocks slide around without getting tangled? What really happens when I spend a Bitcoin? What makes solder stick to some surfaces and not others? Why does anything move if every force is met with an equal and opposite force?

If you're an engineer, technology fan, or just a curious human being, I hope you'll find my video explanations about technology helpful. I strive to make videos as thorough and as concise as possible. My formula typically involves hundreds of hours of research, interviews with experts, and many rounds of editing to distill complex topics down to intuitive and concise explanations. Time is everyone's most precious resource, so I always endeavor to follow the advice, "Don't bore us, get to the chorus."

Sadly, since I haven't won the lottery yet and earn far less than minimum wage from YouTube ads, I have to divide my time between video production and things that actually generate money. The more Patron support I get, the more videos I will be able to make. I will also strive to target topics that you--the Patron supporters--care about.

About Patreon: 

Patreon is a site where you can pledge to give me a dollar amount for every new video I produce. You can also become a Patron for free to give input on future videos. Regarding the goals on the side, they reflect total pledges, not individual ones. For example, if the combined total of all pledges reaches $100, I'll remove the ads from videos while they're new. One more note: you can always cancel your pledge if my videos don't live up to your expectations. Patreon also offers 100% refunds.

Looking forward to hearing your suggestions for future videos!


Here are some comments from among the 5 million views received so far:

How Bitcoin Works Under the Hood

"Thank you for the video, great simplified explanation of several very complex complex subjects involved in Bitcoin. It made my life so much easier in explaining the workings of BTC to my non technological inclined friends, and family." - Allan Aquino Vieira

"One of the best BitCoin explanations in just over 20 minutes. Not too technical, and covers all the key areas." - Rouben Tchakhmakhtchian

" ...thanks for the clear and succinct explanation of Bitcoin!" - KM Tu


How the Kinect Depth Sensor Works in 2 Minutes

"Very clear and concise. Great ! Thanks !" - poltergeistish

"I can hardly find a word to express how much you have helped in my research study using kinect. Thank you!" - zhang28155


How and Why to Solder Correctly

"Excellent video. My 10 years of soldering experience basically come down to these 6-something minutes. Great!" - SectopodTerrorist

"In 6 minutes you gave this novice everything I need to know about taking on a basic soldering project. Clean explanations, clearly articulated, supported with great video clips and images. Well done!" - Jerry Nordstrom

"Great job - well researched and executed with lots of attention to the all-important details. The audio is very clear, as are the video close-up shots. I have many years of soldering experience - but I still learned something new!" - MrDexterToYou

Goals
$5 of $100 per video
