Dave, you've got a follower.
« on: July 23, 2012, 01:01:36 pm »
Check out this russian guy (it's not me and he is not related with me).
Looks like he borrows Dave's style of presentation:

Even his T-shirt is 'localized' version of Dave's "I give only negative feedback".

This video is about making shit-o-meter (level sensor for cesspool).

So because he is showing something related to electronics he must be copying Dave.

I'll agree that the shirt is the same.

No. Because he uses same phrases as Dave, because of same episode structure. And, yeah, because he had just mentioned in his second episode that he really likes Dave Jones and want to do similar videoblog but in russian language.

Hey, it's our old friend Kiriakos!
Seems he has his own forum now.

Dave.

I love it when I see people encouraged by what I do and start their own blog and produce content, it's awesome.
One of the most satisfying aspects of what I do!

That will be funny, and truly unbiased unless of course It's his favourite Chinese multimeter........

With the Greek issue it would be a good thing to have extra income, especially not in Greek Euro's.

Interesting, I wonder how he will deal with trolls?

I wish luck to his endeavor, nevertheless.  Doing an eevblog-a-like is easy to startup, but its a killer to keep going.

Although there are similarities, there is a uniqueness all its own.  Given the market for Russian language shows vs English shows, it seems more a homage than competition.

He is a clear thinker though [ what little I can understand!], given the quality of how he speaks, his precision and clarity of presentation, and his skill in video editing,  he has a future.

So because he is showing something related to electronics he must be copying Dave.

I don't know who cam first, you or Mike of Mikeselectricstuff, and I don't care. I really  like it when you two bounce a topic back and forth. It would be neat to have that sort of exchange going on constantly at least amongst the English-speaking folks, and if others want to joint in with Greek, Ukrainian, whatever versions, all the better.

Judjing by his size no one will bother (though I have to admit I'm tempted  ;)) people fail to realize how hard it is to get a forum going you really need an existing member base. I setup a local forum to replace one our local council closed down and most of it's few members moved over. No one new has spontaneously joined and I wonder if it will run out of steam unless i publicize it locally.
