Jawed Karim, who is currently a computer scientist, is one of the co-founders of Youtube and the first Youtuber to upload a video to Youtube. This video is still on his youtube channel called "jawed" which uploaded on 23 Apr 2005. Before he supports to invent the Youtube, he worked in Paypal with the other co-founding members of Youtube who are Chad Hurley and Steve Chen.

To further studies, he declined to be an employee on Youtube because he needed to enroll at Stanford University to study computer science. But at that time, he was an advisor on Youtube. For this reason, he had missed a lot of shares compared to other co-founding members when Google purchased Youtube in 2006.

He was a 24 years old teenager when they invented the Youtube, and after 68 days from invented, he uploads the first ever youtube video that appears in a zoo. The video name was "Me at the zoo," and it was a 19 seconds video. He was saying, "Alright, so here we are in front of the elephants, the cool thing about these guys is that they have really, really, really long trunks, and that's, that's cool. And that's pretty much all there is to say.

At that moment, that video has more than 89 million views and more than 2.9 million likes. However, it is also the most commented video on Youtube at the time of article writing, which has 5,223,698 comments. He was in the zoo, but today he is on the millionaire list. He has 190,000,000 net worth who created a platform for people to become millionaires.

He did not come to the media as a creator of Youtube until Google purchased Youtube in 2016, and he doesn't show his personal life to the media even today. So all we have to learn is if an 18-second video could build a much useful community like youtube, what cannot we build. The day they got the idea, they had never thought that the idea becomes an earning way not only they but also other people around the world who have talents to show but don't have jobs.
