I was lucky to spend a short time working with Chad at PayPal, as well as other co-founders Steve & Jawed, before the three of them left to start YouTube along with some other amazing ex-PayPalers. Over the next year or so, I had a front-row seat watching YouTube grow from an early alpha site to mainstream craze thru acquisition by Google into the full-blown video juggernaut it is today.
Here is a brief video clip intvw i did with Chad before the dinner:
Here is video Liz shot of Chad's talk (ironically posted on blip.tv, not YT):
(additional clips were also taken via cellphone by Daniel Brusilovsky, teen-tech entrepreneur & community evangelist at Qik)
For those geeks interested in learning more about YouTube API & technology & and their growing developer program, i encourage you to join me on July 10th & check out the Powered by YouTube Day at YouTube HQ in San Bruno, CA (more info on the YouTube API blog).
