Do "Top Videos" lists on Youtube hinder creativity?

Here we go: visiting the "Superstar Economy", again. Youtube is a phenomenon, drawing in thousands of video uploads in any week but often there have been cases where high quality videos do not get the required exposure in face of the general public's attraction for the popular "top videos" lists on Youtube.

Like MTV Top music videos and Video countdowns of the TV age, these top 10 lists often do not include insightful but 'nichy' videos. Bloggers who write long, insightful pieces face a similar problem.

Nick Douglas has written a useful article on the subject. Particularly, he points to sites such as Vimeo.com, which does not have Top lists and lets users "discover" great stuff.

You might also want to read transcripts of a talk between Nick and Slate readers where he analyzes Youtube and Video sites in detail.
