Randomonium 1. YouTube was founded by Chad Hurley, Steven Chen, and Jawed Karim, former employees of PayPal, an online commerce website. They registered the domain name in February 2005. It was officially launched in December of that year. 2. In October 2006, Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion in stocks, just18 months after YouTube’s creation. Karim received $66 million in Google stock, Chen received $310 million, and Hurley received $334 million. 3. The first month after its creation, YouTube had 3 million visitors. The number of visitors tripled by the third month (February 2006), and then tripled again by July to 30 million visitors. By the end of the site’s first year, the number of visitors reached over 38 million. 4. YouTube’s viewers are approximately 44% female and 56% male. Most viewers are 12–17 years old. 5. In 2007, it was estimated that YouTube used as much bandwidth as the entire Internet did in 2000. 6. YouTube has become such a cultural phenomenon that a college course was devoted to it. In 2007, Pitzer College in California offered a course called “Learning from YouTube.” The teacher wanted students to think about YouTube’s place in society. 7. In May 2008, L.A. police arrested Cyrus Yazdini for vandalism. He had published many of his graffiti adventures on YouTube with a rap soundtrack. His YouTube publications helped police find and arrest him. 8. The very first video-sharing Website was ShareYourWorld.com, which was started in1997. However, because technology at the time was not good enough for sending and watching videos over the Internet, it soon went out of business. 9. In 2013, You Tube had more than 72 hours of video uploaded per minute—or over a decade of content every day.

Famous Quotes Studio 66

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”

“I see many people die because they judge that life is not worth living. I see others paradoxically gettin killed for the ideas or illusions that give them a reason for living (what is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying). I therefore conclude that the meaning of life is the most urgent of questions.” “Love is the kind of illness that does not spare the inteligent or the dull.” “Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.” “Nihilism is not only despair and negation, but above all the desire to despair and to negate.” “I should like to be able to love my country and still love justice.” “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” “There are causes worth dying for, but none worth killing for.” “How utterly futile debauchery seems once it has been accomplished, and what ashes of disgust it leaves in the soul.” “All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.” “Life is the sum of all your choices.” “Dont believe your friends when they ask you to be honest with them. All they really want is to be maintained in the good opinion they have of themselves.” “We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives...inside ourselves.” “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” “The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience” - Albert Camus -
