I'm excited to start my new job at YouTube in a few weeks. I'll manage the engineering team building the data warehouse for usage metrics.

I like that YouTube is important. It's firmly a part of our culture and I'm sure it will be how my kids watch video. YouTube's impressive statistics are the result. You don't see usage like that without a bunch of hard problems, and hard problems attract bright people. Indeed that's the clincher for why I'm looking forward to working there. People vote with their feet, and I have a lot of friends who have opted for Google, and YouTube specifically. They tell me that it's a great place to work.

YouTube is one of the worlds foremost platforms for social commentary, education, and free speech. And it's plenty of entertainment too. Sounds like fun.
