YouTube Turns 3

Wired points out that YouTube made it’s appearance on the scene only three short years ago.  Amazing to think it has been such a brief period of time:

“The video-sharing site, founded by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim, has, in three short years, become the third-most-visited website worldwide, trailing only Yahoo and YouTube’s parent company, Google.

With its slogan — “Broadcast yourself” — sounding a clarion call to exhibitionists the world over, YouTube was an instant hit, encouraging individuals to submit not only their personal videos but movie and TV clips, and music videos as well.”

Of course, YouTube has become much more than anyone ever imagined.  TechCrunch has a nice look at what’s ahead for the internet titan, including:

“YouTube wants to be everywhere. It will continue to distribute its videos beyond the Web browser to mobile devices and large, flat-screen TVs in the living room.”
