Lloyd Braun

The most interesting thing that came out of the big Yahoo reorganization is the background of the name Lloyd Braun, the character that is the nemesis of George in Seinfeld.

According to one comment to the techcrunch post this is how it happened:

Lloyd lost a bet with Larry David on the golf course. The wager was that if Larry beat Lloyd in the match, Larry could use his name in some future project. Several months later Larry decided to use Lloyd Braun as the character’s name on Seinfeld without telling Lloyd first. Lloyd was caught completely off guard. All as told by Lloyd himself at a Sales conference in Palm Springs.
