The 2 Kings


Google has bought YouTube for US$1.65 billion, and here are a very happy Chad Hurley and Steve Chen telling the world about it.

The deal, the first to value one of the new crop of user-participation websites at more than $1 billion, combines two of the most popular internet brands:
Google, synonymous with Web search and rapid innovation, and YouTube, the Silicon Valley upstart that spearheaded the video-sharing craze. As Chad says, "The 2 kings" :-)

I'd be happy too if I was in my twenties and suddenly found myself a multi millionaire. Good on em'. Decent chaps.
