Meet YouTube CEO Salar Kamangar Live

Via Body Language, Founder and Former YouTube CEO Chad Hurley Demonstrates Strong Partnership with Salar "Little Superstar" Kamangar

Who’s the YouTube CEO? Not Chad Hurley anymore. It’s Salar Kamangar.

Let’s introduce the YouTube community to Salar Kamanagar, and get him to Vidcon2011 (the YouTube version of South By Southwest spawned by Hank/John Green and the Nerdfighters).

This article gives you some interesting cultural nuances about Google and YouTube which are rare in print. And another piece profiles Salar Kamangar.

Dear Salar “Little Superstar” Kamangar: as the new Lord of YouTube, your presence would be welcome and appreciated by the YouTube community. You could send your “specialist,” but how about making a personal visit to let the creators, viewers and fans know they still matter even if you go Madison & Vine. VidCon is July 28-30, 2011 in Los Angeles. Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel 2025 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA 90067.

Here’s the agenda, and you’ll be the keynote. I know last year didn’t work out. And don’t worry- we’re a very positive group and it won’t be like typical public speaking settings. Hey if you just walk on stage, wave, and say hi… you’ll have us eating from your hands.

Sure I’ll probably make a fart sound from the back of the audience when you get onto the stage, but that’s only to make you feel “at home.” You know what we’d LOVE? If you told us a story. Something that humanizes you… maybe a funny experience of the early days of Google that’s not widely known. Stay away from biology and corporate stuff. Tell us a funny anecdote from your rare and wild ride.

You don’t have to talk about YouTube’s future, and nobody’s gonna grill you about how much attention you give to amateurs versus professionals. The crowd would toss out an antagonist and they’d be ejected like a viral infection. This is the friggin’ NERDFIGHTER group. It stands for reducing world suck. Increasing awesome.

Someone told me you’re a big iJustine fan, and she’s going to be there!

Send him some love in comments, mkay?

  1. Yt is nothing but human aspect to me. It is where I met the love of my life and hundreds of like minded friends from all over the world who keep in touch online and go out of their way to meet each other and hang out. Yt changed my life and the lives of everyone around me. I love walking into a room and complete strangers coming up to me and telling me how much they enjoy my videos. Wouldn’t trade that for anything. The face of yt should totally encourage a personal aspect! Because it is an extremely personal experience.

  2. I still fondly remember the day I was looking at a picture of iJustine and my dad walked by and asked if she was my girlfriend. I do not fondly remember telling him that she was not my girlfriend and him telling me I should really get one already, though. Ah, memories.

  3. Nalty, you sure are using a lot of bad language recently. Do you kiss your wife with that mouth?
