Stanford Student Accepts YouTube Job via Twitter


Stanford computer science student Feross Aboukhadijeh has recently accepted a job from YouTube CEO Chad Hurley.  Feross has created http://ytinstant.com which is just like Google instant.  Many users aren’t familiar with the term ‘Instant.’  This is the feature used where you type into the google feed and it switches according to what you type.  This is now done through youtube, thanks to Feross.

This is quite shocking.  Feross will still attend Standford University while working for YouTube.  But, it’s amazing how quickly word spreads.  His website hit one million views in less than 10 days.  Expect YouTube to integrate the ‘Instant’ feature right away!

Congratulations to Feross Aboukhadijeh!
