YouTube Joins Google and Bing Instant Search, Developer Got a Job Offer from YouTube CEO

With YouTube APIs available, another web developer was able to mimic Google search enhancement called Google Instant which went live two days ago.
Feross Aboukhadijeh, a college student at Stanford University, created a web application called YouTube Instant which basically works similar (though not exactly the same) with that of Google or let’s say, with Bing’s Real Live Search.

Interestingly, YouTube Co-Founder and CEO, Chad Hurley, liked the app and asked via tweet if Feross want a job. Feross replied seeking answer if the job offer is for real and it appears that Chad Hurley is serious asking the latter if he is ready to leave school. Well, the conversation seems to come to a point the young Feross might land a job in YouTube. Who knows?

I tried using YouTube Instant and in fairness, it’s cool! Once you search for a particular video, it will display its suggestions and play the video automatically. One thing though, the site is kinda slow; but you can still try it yourself here. Go check it out and let’s talk about it below.
