10th Anniversary

14 Feb, 2015

YouTube turns ten years old. The site was created by three Paypal employees, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and  Jawed Karim, who registered the domain name on February 14, 2005. The first video ever uploaded on YouTube on April 23, 2005 was made by Karim’s friend Yakov Lapitsky and titled  “Me at the Zoo”. It has since been viewed more than 17 million times.

Lapitsky comments on his moment in internet history:

It’s neat, but I don’t think that much of it.

It is estimated that around 300 hours of video are now uploaded every hour.
