What we'd like to think of YouTube as is a part of Google with very overlapping goals and values. We're a fundamental part of the advertising business for Google.
YouTube has proven it can flourish in a model where there is more autonomy, and in that way I think it is an example and a potential model for other areas of the business.
I can't predict exactly what the TV channel of the future is, but we think more and more time spent on TV is going to be around web content and web video.
