Recipients of INFORUM's 21st Century Visionary Award

In conversation with Chris Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of Wired Magazine.

With YouTube, Chad and Steve created a new way for millions of people to entertain, educate, rock and shock one another on a scale we've never seen before. YouTube is a platform for everyday people to broadcast their perspectives to the masses. Musicians, amateur filmmakers, comedians, and professional content owners alike are sharing their videos, and some even rise to the top to become stars. INFORUM awards the founders of YouTube for their ingenuity and talks with them about everything from their homegrown culture to Google to what's next on the horizon.

This program was recorded live on May 23, 2007.
