Few days ago, youtube has been bought by google for $1.65 billion dollars. That was an amazing deal for the owner because he has been managing it for only 18 months. I know the owner is happy. He had less than 10 employees, they are also very happy because they are multimillionaires now due to this transaction.

It is amazing to have something for this amount of time and sell to be a billionaire. Youtube was sold for more than triple the amount MySpace was sold for. About $500 million.

Just some internet news! :D

That's good for them, maybe if this forum gets the popularity of YouTube (which might take longer), Linux can get in on some of that dough too... ;)
