X’s inspiration stories:
Hurley and Chen developed the idea for X during the early
months of 2005, after they had experienced difficulty sharing
videos that had been shot at a dinner party at Chen's apartment
in San Francisco. Karim did not attend the party and denied that
it had occurred.
Karim said that the inspiration for X came from Janet
Jackson's role in the 2004 Super Bowl incident, when her breast
was accidentally exposed during her performance. Karim could
not easily find a video clip of the incident online, which led to the
idea of a video sharing site.
Hurley and Chen said that the original idea for X was a video
version of an online dating service, and had been influenced by
the website Hot or Not.
