I offered 1.6 billion but that was as much as I was willing to spend.

good luck removing all the copy righted videos. after that's done, all you've got left are idiots lighting their farts on fire.

Yeah Mark Cuban and someone else, drawing a blank right now, last week commented that YouTube has no real value but I think that's a bit of an overstatement in and of itself. It obviously has value. Question is how will Google maximize it?

CBS and Showtime will be providing programming for YouTube. So that helps

I heard on the radio a month or two ago that Youtube was in the process of getting the rights to just about every music video made under all t he major music labels, I think that would add to the value of the site.

I offered them 67 cents as a downpayment, but they said they needed a better sign of good faith. 67 cents, 1.65 billlion, what's the difference?

I still can't believe they paid $1.6 BILLION for a hosting service with a search function. This site is 10 times more complicated to run.

Actually we were only about a billion short. Cooley350Z offered to put up the first $650 million.

If nothing else, we're apparently worth a lot more than ES

A good friend of my mom used to be a pre-Kindergarten teacher and one of her students was Sergey Brin (co-founder of Google). It's funny to hear her talk about him "He's doing pretty well for himself these days. He started a company"

It's like she's aware of his success but not aware of just how big Google is

G.D. that's a hellacious amount more than ES is worth.

On a side note, apparantly my myspace page is worth 2 dollars. Woot! And since myspace.com is worth more than 9 million, i should consider myself lucky to be a part of something that big lol.

Redskins.com is worth 107 grand. That's not much more than the Warpath is worth. GJ on the site Matty.
