Hmmm….so how do you make a billion in 20 months? Find a cure for a killer disease? Invent an alternative to the World’s never ending quench for Oil? All likely and probable answers to making someone a very rich person – very quickly…………..Alternatively, you could maintain and run a website from your garage – upload (bucketloads of) silly pointless videos and sell it to Google for a cool $1.65 billion dollars (yes, that’s billion)….Well, that’s exactly what the YouTube co-founder’s did.
So who are the brainchilds behind the infamous YouTube site? Some metaphysics professors? Some astrodynamic internet protocal scientists? Ermmm….well no….actually Chad Hurley and Steven Chen.
Check out Chad and Steve’s remarks on their sale of Youtube to Google. I think you’ll be shocked at how ‘normal’ and err….frankly un-business-like these guys are! (ok, I’m just jealous).
