YouTube Founder Compares Online Video To Nascent TV Market

A Brave New World 

The Future of Managing Content

by Michael Arrington on October 16, 2008  on TechCrunch


YouTube Cofounder Chad Hurley spoke at the MIPCOM Conference in Cannes, France yesterday.


In the talk, which is transcribed below, Hurley compares the current state of online video to the nascent years of television. In 1941, he says, “CBS has just launched its new television network amidst cries that it means the death of radio.” Advertisers were hard to come by. Content owners were afraid of alienating their existing audiences. etc.

    A person who want to make their own thing, must face competitive pressure test, because this is a competitive
    society, whether in the competition a success or failure, everyone must bear the pressure. Real life, who also could
    not escape the stress. To accomplish great things, for the lofty goal, the pressure may be greater. But if you want
    to become a major event, it must be able to withstand the pressure, the pressure as the advance the power of life
