"[His] library was a fine dark place bricked with books, so anything could happen there and always did. All you had to do was pull a book from the shelf and open it and suddenly the darkness was not so dark anymore."
- Ray Bradbury
I love the library.
I've been going to the library since the age of two (thanks, Mom!).
I've also worked hard over the last few years trying to develop my own personal, perpetual, blockchain-archived library. It's presently under development on the Steemit blockchain.
But have you heard of LBRY?
Here's a very short but informative YouTube video about LBRY that you can stream without leaving this page:

"LBRY is uncensored, unfiltered, and unlimited videos, games, and more.
Enjoy the latest content from your favorite creators—as a user, not a product."
Do you use YouTube?
If so, you've very likely heard of all the content that has been demonetized or outright banned recently. It's become quite clear that we need safe ways to publish and share the content that we feel is significant, without fear of censorship.
At first blush, it looks to me as if publishing on LBRY may be one of those ways.
Here's another short LBRY promo video.

If you're a developer,
I hope you'll consider enabling LBRY video links to stream on these pages, just like YouTube videos presently do?

If you have a YouTube channel now,
LBRY seems to have a mechanism for automatically migrating your YouTube channel videos to a new channel on LBRY. I have not tried this (I don't have much of a YouTube collection to try), but I would love to hear any user experiences in the comments below.
I'm just getting started with LBRY, and so please take all this with a grain of salt... However, if it turns out to actually be what it appears to be on the face of it, I think
User-Managed Content Distribution

P.S. If you have an "in" with anybody at Steemit, Inc. - Would you please ask them to get rid of these damn, extremely annoying "off-website" arrow/boxes? The have, overnight, made Steemit ugly. There are much better solutions.
