— Flipboard CEO Mike McCue, to the L.A. Times
Chad Hurley is the other half of the dynamic duo of YouTube, one of the most highly trafficked Web sites, serving billions of videos around the world, and which was acquired by search giant Google for $1.65 billion this past year. As CEO, his responsibilities include oversight of business development, marketing and operations for the company; he also created the interface and designed YouTube's logo. While Mr. Hurley says his overall vision for the service is to keep the process of watching and sharing video effortless for everyone, some major media companies are not as thrilled with the idea because of content piracy concerns. Prior to YouTube, he was the first user interface designer at PayPal, where he designed the first PayPal logo. Mr. Hurley received a bachelor's degree in fine art at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
