Lunch with the FT: Susan Wojcicki
When Google purchased YouTube for $1.65bn a decade ago, the deal for the then one-year-old video-sharing site was described by dotcom veteran entrepreneur Mark Cuban as moronic. Today, “prophetic” seems a better description: 400 hours of video a minute are uploaded to the site, which is watched by more than 1bn people, or a third of the world’s online population.
I interviewed YouTube chief executive Susan Wojcicki for the FT's most famous interview slot, the Lunch with the FT. It was a joy to write such a long piece looking at her character, history and the future of online video.
