Few words from how youtube was made...
Karim said the inspiration for Youtube first came from Janet Jackson's role in the 2004 Super Bowl Incident when her breast was exposed during her performance, and later from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Karim couldn't find easy videos of the event online, which led to the idea of a video sharing site. Hurley and Chen said that the original idea Youtube was a video version of online dating service, and had been influenced by the website under the name od Hot or Not. They started asking attractive females to upload videos of themselves to youtube in exchange for a 100$ reward. Difficulty in finding enough dating videos and content videos took them to change of plans, with the site's founders deciding to accept uploading of any type of videos.
