After playing with and loving Google Instant, Stanford University student Feross Aboukhadijeh created a similar search engine for YouTube called YouTube Instant. What started out as a bet to complete the project in under an hour, has launched him to Internet stardom and a possible job from YouTube.
After playing with Google Instant, Feross bet his roommate that he could create a similar program for YouTube in under an hour. His roommate took him up on the offer, and though it took him a few hours more than expected, YouTube instant was born. Feross' site, YouTube Instant, has been a huge success with close 715,000 visitors in six days. It has also drawn the attention of YouTube's CEO Chad Hurley, who sent what may possibly be a job offer via Twitter.
Whether or not Feross eventually works at YouTube or not, he's definitely off to a good start and a bright future.
