Google says speed is king

CNET "SAN FRANCISCO--YouTube succeeded where Google Video didn't because users were able to see their videos posted immediately, Google executive Marissa Mayer said at the Web 2.0 Summit here on Thursday.
'YouTube let people see the video right away,' Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience, said during a short talk. 'That's why it did so well.'
By contrast, people posting to Google Video had to wait anywhere from two to four days for the video to be vetted and posted for public consumption, Mayer said.
Google announced that it was acquiring YouTube for $1.65 billion in stock last month. "
