Fast Company’s latest cover story is on tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee. There’s the main feature itself and a highlights reel of his most significant videos, but perhaps the best quotes in the package come from this interview with Brownlee’s mom, Jeaniene Brownlee:

It was in the family room. We’d rent a movie from Blockbuster on weekends. There were no video games—I wouldn’t allow them.
