YouTube, YouTube Walkout, and COPPA (232 words) 

@packbat the thing about Google and everything it does is that they either automate it or don't do it at all. Their modus operandi is to keep as few human operators as possible.

This is something you learn fast when trying to sell your startup to Google - if you can't make this thing you did completely automated, you can scratch them off your buy list.

@polychrome @packbat good thing they bought YouTube back before it was thought to be regulated so heavily.

@packbat The real issue is that the FTC basically said "requiring people to say they're 13+ to create an account doesn't count as proof of their age"
