News: I’ve received several commenters asking for more information about the Denny’s where the historic meeting between YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steven Chen and Google founder Larry Page and CEO Eric Schmidt. Based on a NYT article today, I’ve finally figured out it was the Denny’s on Broadway in Redwood City (map here).
Analysis: Somewhat ironically, I used to live down the street from this Denny’s! And I can tell you that I’ve eaten there several times and never once saw any business-type ever in that restaurant. The manager was not lying when he told NYT, “We generally get families here, lots of families, husbands and wives and their kids.” But the location does make sense in at least one way, it’s sort of halfway between YouTube in San Bruno and Google in Redwood City, and conveniently located right off of 101.
