On 23rd April 2005 (14 years ago), the very first YouTube video was uploaded:


The video even has its own Wiki page -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Me_at_the_zoo

For info the guy in the video is one of Youtube's co-founders before they sold it to Google. I've heard that he doesn't like the direction Google has taken the platform in. He very publicly criticised them when they they forced users to create a Google+ account in order to be able to write a comment under a video, for example.

14 years... that's a very long time. Incredible how it blew up and I can't even imagine how it was to surf through the web without spending at least 5 minutes on youtube :D
