Like it or not, seems like YouTube is introducing subscription-based paid channels in Spring of this year. YouTube has already contacted several channel owners about creating paid versions of their channels.

Andrey Ternovskiy, the 17-year-old Russian high school student responsible for Chatroulette, is kind of a big deal. He was last sighted at the Palo Alto Apple Store at 4 AM last Saturday, waiting in line for, of course, the iPad, flanked by a few investors and writing code for the site that so famously has scared reporters with happily flaunted male genitalia. Geek rock star at work.
