YouTube Instant creator accepts the job at YouTube and continue at Stanford

Stanford computer science student Feross Aboukhadijeh took three hous to make himself famous on the Internet. He is the creator of YouTube Instant site. Earlier this month he created the site in just three hours! He just announced two important things on his blog, his YouTube Instant site reaches one million visitors in ten days as well as a new job offered from YouTube CEO Chad Hurley. Aboukhadijeh also revealed that he's currently interning at Facebook, and he will finish his commitment there before starting at YouTube. He will continue his study at Stanford.

What's YouTube Instant? According to Wikipedia -

YouTube Instant is a real-time search engine built by nineteen-year-old college student and Facebook-software-engineer intern Feross Aboukhadijeh of Stanford University that allows its users to search the YouTube video database as they type. It follows on the heels of Google Instant, and has been described as a "novelty toy", a "catchy little title”, a "prototypical digit to tie the "instant" bandwagon as well as a "completely excellent way to waste 15 minutes".

Aboukhadijeh is going to add some new features to his YouTube Instant site, such as video playback controls, keyboard controls, shortened shareable URLs and Facebook integration.

Below is a YouTube video interview of Aboukhadijeh by NBC San Diego (You can use Leawo Free YouTube Downloader to download it to your computer. Leawo Free YouTube Downloader can accelerate the loading speed of online video, so that you can view online video smoothly) –
