I'm Feross Aboukhadijeh, an entrepreneur, programmer, open source maintainer, startup founder, and mad scientist.
Before that, I built PeerCDN, a peer-to-peer content delivery network to makes sites faster and cheaper, which was acquired by Yahoo.
I enjoy working on "mad science" — stuff that makes people say, "Whoa! I didn't know that was possible!".
At Stanford, I taught computer science for 6 quarters to students in Stanford's CS 198 program, and was a teaching assistant for CS107: Computer Organization and Systems. I organized lots of sweet computing-related events as president of Stanford's Association for Computing Machinery chapter.
In September 2010, I built YouTube Instant (a really fast way to search YouTube) in just 3 hours as a bet with my roommate. The site garnered immediate worldwide media attention — 1 million visitors in 10 days, and hundreds of news stories. Chad Hurley, CEO and co-founder of YouTube, was so impressed that he immediately offered me a job at YouTube (which I had to turn down in order to finish my degree).
I like long-distance running, traveling, computer security, peer-to-peer networks, vapourwave, and games (counter-strike is still my favorite).
I currently live in Stanford, CA.
