My high school and grade school friend, George Economou, Jr. We stopped talking after he got his Compartmentalized Top Secret clearance. His father worked at Los Alamos building the first atomic bomb. In 1999, Akamai's stock was worth over $300. George worked on their video content distribution network.
His influence got me thinking about video and content on the internet. By 2003, he was worth several million. I asked him for $10,000 to start YouTube, but at the time his father was gravely ill and I was dealing with some issues of my own. George and I haven't talked much after this: he seems to think we met in high school, but we really met in 4th grade. When questioned briefly by my attorneys, he admitted to knowing me, but could not recall anything about any details from 2002/2003. Of course, Akamai is partnered with Google and has agreements with YouTube. They provided the bandwidth for the YouTube Live! events.
