You Tube co-founder tells world about AVOS office in Dunedin

A co-founder of internet giant You Tube is sharing his Dunedin experience with the world.

The video-sharing website was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, and later sold to Google for $US1.65 billion ($NZ1.91 billion) in November 2006.

Mr Hurley and Mr Chen have since set up the company AVOS, which has offices in California, Beijing and Dunedin.

''At AVOS we are building a common technology platform to help developers create fun and beautiful apps faster than ever,'' the website notes.

Mr Hurley, who did not respond to a request for an interview, posted pictures of himself in Dunedin last week.

On the social media site Twitter he tweeted pictures of the AVOS Princes St location, ''Chilling at the New Zealand office!'' and of the Dunedin Railway Station, ''Train to Middle-Earth''.

The internet mogul also tweeted to his 541,000 followers pictures of Baldwin St, and two pictures from Moeraki, including one of himself on a Moeraki boulder.

The holiday snaps are in esteemed company, with recent pictures shared by Mr Hurley including a lunch date at the White House, at an Oscars after party, and with basketball star Michael Jordan.
