We are part of the 20 person team at Linus Tech Tips (Linus Sebastian, Edzel Yago, Nick Light, and Colton Potter), one of the biggest PC hardware and consumer tech channels on YouTube (5,500,000+ Subscribers), ask us ANYTHING.
We're hosting a fun meet-up and interactive tech event on July 14th, 2018 in Richmond, BC, Canada. If you're around, you should come hang out with us! LTX 2018 Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3335654 LTX 2018 Website: https://www.ltxexpo.com/
EDIT: That's all for now guys! Thank you for ALL of the questions. <3
Colton, how are your working conditions? Do you ever get let out of the cage? How hard does linus beat you?
My working conditions are great actually. While I've been fired multiple times on camera as a sort of ongoing joke, I still remain a part of the company. There have not been any beatings at this time. :P
What was the most expensive production fail? (cost a ton and got no views)
Probably NerdSports or our most recent Tech Showdown season.
We always want to keep trying new things, and we learn a LOT each time something doesn't go to plan, which helps when planning future projects.
what do you think is the most common mistake that people make when picking the parts for their first PC? what's the most embarrassing mistake you've made building a PC? can you tell I didn't plan this question out beforehand?
I know multiple people who didn't know there were different motherboard form factors and ordered the wrong size that didn't fit whatever case they got. I ALWAYS screw something up when connecting all of the pins, fan headers, power, etc on the motherboard...
We are! We're currently in the planning phases for the next season, which we're hoping to film within the next month or so.
Linus knows what he wants and will set a goal, then let us as employees figure out the best way to get to that goal. I respect that, it gives me room to figure things out, learn, and grow.
The guy is upbeat, energetic, and positive, and while we don't goof around nearly as much as you probably think, we still have fun.
Some of his jokes suck though. :P
McDonald's, Pho, or Mucho Burrito. Jon, Nick, and I can never decide.
No. At least not for now. :P
We're focusing on a bunch of other projects right now, and if we were to put more focus towards Channel Super Fun we'd probably have to rethink our strategy. Dennis and I are working with the team here to put out content when we can, but we're not forcing anything.
We actually had a new CSF video come out on Floatplane where I stole other LMG employee things and constructed my own office. It's wonderful.
