Interview with the Head of YouTube @YouTube @YTCreators Robert Kyncl by Casey Neistat @CaseyNeistat @rkyncl

Interviewing the Head of YouTube Robert Kyncl by Casey Neistat. Chief Business Officer, YouTube and author of Streampunks.

Good work Casey scoring this interview, a few things that were said that we’ll check back on later, YouTube (and Google) tend to make promises and statements but does not follow through, specifically about educational content on YouTube, women/STEM. War of press releases, part of the game. Back in March of 2016, YouTube committed to more ‘female-driven content’ and there was an interview about getting more “female-driven content on YouTube.” (The video has since been removed.)

Educational content…” – Robert Kyncl.
The one category I didn’t mention is, and we would like, more and more female creators on the platform, it’s a huge opportunity, huge.” – Robert Kyncl.

We’ll see if we can score an interview with Robert or make contact, there is a lot of educational content, women/STEM and female creators doing great work, YouTube is what it celebrates and what it programs its algorithm to promote.

Robert Kyncl is the Chief Business Officer at YouTube where he oversees all commercial and creative relationships for the platform. Previously, Robert was Vice President of Content at Netflix, where he spearheaded the company’s content acquisition for streaming TV shows and movies over the Internet. Robert has been listed in Variety’s Dealmakers Impact Report as one of their “disruptors”, Vanity Fair’s New Establishment List, Billboard’s Power 100 List and AdWeek’s 50 List of Vital Leaders in Tech, Media and Marketing.

Robert holds a Masters of Business Administration from Pepperdine University and a B.S. in International Relations from SUNY New Paltz. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.

Book

Robert has a book, I bought it, I’ll read it over the next couple days.

An entertainment and tech insider—YouTube’s chief business officer—delivers the first detailed account of the rise of YouTube, the creative minds who have capitalized on it to become pop culture stars, and how streaming video is revolutionizing the media world.

In the past ten years, the internet video platform YouTube has changed media and entertainment as profoundly as the invention of film, radio, and television did, more than six decades earlier. Streampunks is a firsthand account of this upstart company, examining how it evolved and where it will take us next.

Sharing behind-the-scenes stories of YouTube’s most influential stars—Streampunks like Tyler Oakley, Lilly Singh, and Casey Neistat—and the dealmakers brokering the future of entertainment like Scooter Braun and Shane Smith, Robert Kyncl uses his experiences at three of the most innovative media companies, HBO, Netflix, and YouTube, to tell the story of streaming video and this modern pop culture juggernaut. Collaborating with Google speechwriter Maany Peyvan, Kyncl explains how the new rules of entertainment are being written and how and why the media landscape is radically changing, while giving aspiring Streampunks some necessary advice to launch their own new media careers.

Kyncl persuasively argues that, despite concerns about technology impoverishing artists or undermining artistic quality, the new media revolution is actually fueling a creative boom and leading to more compelling, diverse, and immersive content. Enlightening, surprising, and thoroughly entertaining, Streampunks is a revelatory ride through the new media rebellion that is reshaping our world.
