Letter: Job well done

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

Do you ever go on YouTube? It is an incredible invention which helps so many people and also makes them very happy. I have read that YouTube got started in 2005 by three gentlemen by the names of Jawed Karim, Steve Chen and Chad Hurley. They met when they were working at the payment processor PayPal just a few short years ago.

Karim was born in East Germany on Oct. 28, 1979; Chen was born in Taipei, Taiwan, on Aug. 25, 1978, and Hurley was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 24, 1977. Mr. Hurley has an older sister and a younger brother. Today his salary is $4.5 million per year and his net worth is $355 million. Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion in 2006 … I absolutely adore YouTube. Thanks so much, gentlemen. Job well done.
