Chad Hurley will never again meet with his financial planner in a diner.
“The waitress asked me how my pie was,” said Hurley. “I said it was delicious. I guess [my financial planner] Mike was asking me what I wanted to purchase at the same time. We were talking about diversifying.”
Hours later, the deal was closed. Hurley’s Co-founder Steve Chen also signed off on it.
“I thought he was buying it ironically,” said Chen. “You know, like you’d buy an ironic shirt, or a Nickelback CD.”
“It’s no biggie. We spent more than that on a party last week.”
