Reviewing YouTube - in 2005

I was playing around with TechCrunch to see how far it goes back (a review of Technorati seems to be the oldest article on the site).

While I was browsing, I found quite a gem - an August 2005 review of YouTube:
  • "YouTube is very much like flickr, but for videos."
  • "The service has recently been launched but seems to have quite a few users who have posted lots of content."
  • "I suspect YouTube will be quickly acquired and/or duplicated. We love it."
A bit more than a year later, that prediction turned into reality, and breaking that story made TechCrunch the premier news source it is today.
