I was watching ABC’s Good Morning America this morning. It seems every time the media does a story on YouTube (which is about every 4.5 minutes) the reporter feels obliged to mention that the company’s headquarter is in a loft above a pizza place.
Why is this important? Why are we obsessed with the company’s that are founded in a garage or are based over a pizza place? What if it was founded in a living room and now moved over a shoe store?
Anyway… it got me thinking. I wonder if I can find the name of the pizza place. I found it. Amici’s in San Mateo, Caliornia. So I decided to call have a a pizza delivered to Chad Hurley, YouTube’s cofounder. On the house account. Trouble is… they wanted YouTube’s phone number, which is a well guarded secret. Nonetheless, the pizza is probably arriving as I type this.
And here’s the video of the call. Again- don’t ask why I did this because I really have no answer.
