Thanks for the comments and site visits during this week.
Strides in technology with “Glass” are impressive. Remember you have until Feb. 28th for applications.
Also the response to the champions of online video has been amazing. So what better way to end this weeks peak at Google Glass and it’s video capabilities entering the market than to look at the personalities behind the state of the video platform likely to be used for “Glass” sharing.
YouTube will be utilized immensely with Glass so it is only fitting to take 7days to learn a little about it. Google’s acquisition played and has a pivotal role in YouTube’s innovation.
Here are the creators Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim of what we now know as YouTube. It’s great because we get to see the raw enjoyment of being associated with one of the best corporations in existence right now”Google”.., and the resulting impact it has had on business and their personal successes.
Watch and Enjoy!
Founded on February 14, 2005. The domain name “YouTube.com” was activated on February 15, 2005, with the website launching shortly thereafter.
Did you notice the informal but relationship building aspect of the video.
There is a profound lesson in this while creating video today. Entertainment factors must be relevant and apparent to capture attention, create trust and foster a emotionally secure working environment.
In fact, This informal approach and confidence has led to massive success as we know. Amateur videos of people just having fun in front of the camera ad-libbing (like the founders in the video) are responsible for a percentage of market share behind YouTube.
In November 2005, just 10 months after its founding, YouTube received funding from Sequoia Capital and the service was officially launched in December 2005. In the time since, YouTube has had a sensational skyrocket like rise to very top of the Web and currently in the top sites visited online.
Who do you think it is responsible for that?
Google’s- recognition of greatness and the ability to give the little guy a chance to succeed on what was traditionally the deep pocket arena with no extra tickets for scalpers.
Let’s take our Hat’s off to Google, and thank them for the platform we have at our disposal to live out some of our wants while at the same time providing a way to take care of some of our needs. Starting Monday-Friday Let’s look at how a video goes viral on YouTube.
