Mike's Electric Stuff was uploading stuff back in April 2007, but videos where he talked weren't until 2010 by the looks of it.
Fat Man and Circuit Girl had a live show back in at least 2008 I think.
I don't recall other names off-hand.

I wasn't the first with electronics, but I think maybe the first with a "video blog" style regular electronics channel. Certainly the first to go full time at it in April 2011.

Lets hope google doesn't get greedy with the ad revenue and make doing youtube full time impossible. Although I hear if patreon wasn't a thing many would have left. In some ways patreon is bad because it lets these companies off the hook from paying their fair share. Without video creators youtube is nothing or it will turn into cable TV/hulu service.
