YouTube at 5 yrs old

Yes, no one would have thought that a video sharing website would have been so popular, but five years on it’s one of the most successful sites to date with over 2 billion hits a day!
Google, realising that within Youtube’s first year of operation that it had already become a household name on a global scale moved to and purchased the site from it’s co-founders Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim, who were all early employees of PayPal for a cool $1.65bn

So yes, good for Chad, Steve and Jawed and of course Google and ultimately – good for us… Oh! and thank you :)
