Chad Hurley, co-founder of the popular Internet video sharing web site YouTube, said that the company is working on a plan for users who upload videos to be paid for their contributions. More here.
I started posting stuff on YouTube over 10 months ago. I posted videos that I got from my mobile camera and clips that friends sent over to me. A few I posted on this blog and others I kept on YouTube. Now the YouTube benevolent owners want to send some dollars over to me. Thank you very much Mr. Chad. The YouTube team still did not finalize the plan yet but if you want to make me richer, check out my YouTube posts by clicking on the pretty YouTube mosaic on the top left.
One thing I noticed, three days ago I put up a video of a lady rolling cigars, and in the first 3 hours it got around 270 views. My most viewed video is Saddam Hussein's sentencing with 48,087 views.
What does this tell me? That I should post more girl clips, and recent political events. That's stuff I usually try to avoid posting about.
Oh well I might not get rich as fast as I thought.
