YouTube Instant Forget Search Just Type and See

Google Instant is creating news everywhere, well, how about YouTube Instant? The surprising and interesting thing about it is that this innovation does not come from Google or YouTube, but a college student (Feross Aboukhadijeh), but it’s pretty cool and will keep you busy for quite a time. Designed by Feross Aboukhadijeh, a computer science major at Stanford University. He said he bet his roommate that he could replicate the Google Instant model with Youtube within an hour. He lost the bet: it took him three hours instead.

And what we got was a realtime YouTube Search Engine, and the interesting part of the story is within hours it caught the attention of YouTube CEO Chad Hurley.

After spotting YouTube Instant, Hurley Tweeted over to Aboukhadijeh, saying he loved the idea and asking if he wanted a job.

Aboukhadijeh, who goes by the Twitter handle FreeTheFeross, sent a message back to find out if Hurley was serious about the offer — because, after all, this is the Internet. It looks like Hurley was, indeed, quite serious.
