May 17, 2010: 4 days after the case is moved for dismissal: Chad appears in USAToday's Live Technology section in a brief interview reiterating the inception (this time it all began in a small room above a pizza parlour in May 2005, not the classic "San Francisco dinner party" foundation myth that includes the granule of truth that the company was founded in January [Chen's claim] / February [Chad's claim] 2005).
"Five years ago this month, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim rented a small room above a San Mateo, Calif., pizza parlor, and began a beta launch of their new website devoted to videos."
Not exactly the "February.. er uh January 2005" claim Chad claimed from 2005 to April 2010.
"Q: What was your original idea for YouTube, and how has what YouTube has become changed from that vision?
A: We were trying to create a video platform, not too dissimilar from our experience at PayPal, where we empowered people with a payment solution. How do we let people upload any video format, create a video player and put it on a website or blog, take those videos with you and share with the world? The same way Flickr created a photo community, we wanted to create a video community."
The more I say, the more Chad will refine this statement, so I'll leave my opinions to myself, but that was not the only aim for the company and I'll let its CEO bumble through the whys and wherefores since I'm silent (and uncompensated).
May 20, 2010: The Sun writes: "Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim started the company in an office above a pizzeria in San Mateo, California."
May 22, 2010:
May 31, 2010: (Publication date listed as May 20, on Goog) Time Magazine prints an article on its website only(?) called "Brief History YouTube" which involves Chad's input.
May 26, 2010: Copy-cat Chad establishes some new friends in Austin, TX to help his US F1 "dreams" move forward. How ironic, right where my former attorneys are located.
Keep in mind no media has ever covered anything about my case, my claim, etc.

And no, YouTube did not add me to their "FiveYear" video list even though I put in my "I Invented YouTube" video.
