SAN FRANCISCO — The wheels of an inventor are turning in Chad Hurley’s head, after leaving the helm of the cultural phenomenon YouTube, which he co-founded, last fall.
“I’ve been enjoying some downtime. Downtime is creative time,” said Hurley, about being off the grid again in the high-tech epicenter of Silicon Valley in Northern California. He’s been so out of pocket that while at the Sundance Film Festival, he missed a presidential invitation for an entrepreneurship event at the White House because he didn’t check his e-mail.
