While I accept the idea that the guys who invented youtube are successful (by the fact that they sold the company), I have yet to see how youtube.com is a success.

The company haemorrhages money every month. As its userbase grows exponentially, so does its bandwidth costs. While it has successfully attracted tens of millions of users, it has not successfully figured out how to make enough money out of advertising to them. Surely the only measure of a companies success is its profit. Therefore at the moment youtube.com is a charity and not a business......
