This is the story about YouTube - the Internet's TV-killer.
A year ago, co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen were in between jobs, a pair of twentysomething geeks running up big credit card debts as they tooled around a garage trying to develop an easy way for people to share homemade videos on the web.
As April began, Hurley said people were posting about 35,000 new videos daily at YouTube.com, luring even more viewers to an audience that's already watching more than 35 million videos per day, most lasting 30 seconds to 2 1/2 minutes.
Just four months ago, YouTube's visitors were posting about 8000 videos a day while viewers were seeing 3 million videos daily.
The growth has been infectious, depending largely on referrals from users who alert their friends and family to a favorite video. Many of the viewers who discovered the site then decided to share their own videos, a factor that continually deepens YouTube's pool of content.
