Google Instant launched this week to the delight and chagrin of Web users, but it's YouTube Instant creator Feross Aboukhadijeh who's celebrating this weekend. His guerrilla YouTube equivalent was inspired by the instant search Google debuted, and caught the eye of YouTube CEO Chad Hurley.

Hurley contacted the Stanford University computer science student on Twitter yesterday and offered him a job, even asking Feross Aboukhadijeh if he's ready to leave school. Talk about instant gratification!
