Five Minutes with YouTube

Not much new ground covered in this five-minute excerpt from an upcoming Charlie Rose interview with the YouTube founders, but it’s still worth a listen/watch:

As an aside, I hate the Silicon Valley founding myth garage thing. It is usually a lie, and I’d frankly find it more believable if entrepreneurs said they had been grown in moist petri dishes — just add Ajax — under Doerr’s desk on Sandhill.


  1. Paul, what is wrong with the garage myth? Someone who has a garage in Silicon Valley probably lives in a house valued at over $700K. It means that the founder’s background is not exactly Twistian.

  2. why? we work in a garage 😉 sadly, we are very far from silicon valley

  3. Entrepreneurs have it tough enough already… do we need to add the imagery of one under a VC’s desk?
