My first reaction is: wow, you sound really angry. But I'll give you
that... four jobs? That sucks.

My second reaction is, well, Andrew (Rocketboom founder) already covered this.

The point is, videoblogging is scalable. As soon as our $15/month
account couldn't hold us any more, we were at the point where we could
have started putting up ads, accepting sponsorships, just generally
bringing in money to support server costs. We didn't do this, because
we wanted to do things in a very specific way, a way that Andrew had
saved up for years to make happen. - Amanda Congdon, Rocketboom talent
