Linus Sebastian Career


Sebastian was working for the now-defunct Canadian online computer store NCIX. He was asked by the company to be the host for its technology channel, which was designed to help demonstrate products. Sebastian was helped by an unidentified cameraman and editor who was on a tight budget and shooting videos with a camera borrowed from the company's president.

Sebastian was encouraged to create the Linus Tech Tips channel as a cheaper alternative to the NCIX channel due to high costs and poor viewership in the early days of the channel, allowing for lower production values without affecting the NCIX brand. TigerDirect and Newegg were branded rivals by the author. Linus Tech Tips was born on November 24, 2008. Following a dispute over company management, he eventually left NCIX, resulting in a deal in which he could keep the channel as long as he signed a non-compete clause.

Sebastian formed Linus Media Group (LMG) in January 2013 out of a garage. Linus Tech Tips started as an independent company and evolved it into a successful business. Between 2017 and 2019, LMG held the LTX Expo, a "convention bringing together tech-focused content creators and celebrities."

LMG is headquartered in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. It had over 80 full-time employees as of April 2022.

Linus Tech Tips published a video on January 2, 2016, which was shown to be able to handle seven individual users at once. On several websites, the video made technology news. In August 2017, Linus Tech Tips channel released a two-part video in which they were able to play at 16K resolution (15360 by 8640 pixels) using 16 4K monitors in a 4 by 4 configuration.
