[The Chosun Ilbo, March 11 2008] Simple Question Had a Billion-Dollar Answer

Steve Chen, one of the founders and the chief technology officer of YouTube, said the super-successful video-sharing website was born of a simple question: "How could I share a video that I took at a party?"

Chen, wearing jeans and a dress shirt and a head of spiky hair, was speaking in a lecture on Monday at Seoul National University, where he talked about the website's evolution for about half an hour.

"I conceived of YouTube as a place more than just a video-creating site, where a user could show what they created to people all over the world," the 30-year-old tech whiz said.
