Stanford University student, Feross Aboukhadijeh took a page from Google Instant and recently created YouTube Instant, allowing viewers to search the popular site in real time. This sophomore was able to build this in just three hours and says Ferros, has already received coverage by top media that includes Washington Post, New York Times and Mashable just to name a few.
YouTube Co-founder and CEO Chad Hurley was so impressed with this simple creation that he offered Aboukhadijeh a job through his Twitter feed.
Feross is scheduled to be part of the 2012 graduating class at Stanford, but will Feross follow in the footsteps of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerburg and exchange textbooks for html coding?
We don’t know what the future holds for YouTube Instant’s creator, but we do know that Feross’ name is known across media platforms and according to a recent tweet by Ferros, YouTube Instant had 270,000 viewers in 3 days.
