QuoteRichard Hendriks is a shy, reclusive programmer for Hooli (a large corporation) living in a house in Palo Alto. He lives there under an "incubation" program run by Erlich Bachman. Bachman, despite possessing the confidence that Hendriks lacks, seeks parties and drug use rather than offering sound guidance for his startups after he sold his application "Aviato". He resides along with other co-habitants including Nelson "Big Head" Bighetti (a coworker at Hooli), Bertram Gilfoyle, and Dinesh Chugtai. While working at Hooli, Hendriks shares a project of his called "Pied Piper" with the employees: an app that compares music against copyrighted works to avoid infringement. Initially the app was dismissed as a lark by his coworkers. He tries pitching it to Peter Gregory, an eccentric venture capitalist who awkwardly dismisses him. Hendriks ends up pitching the app to Monica (Gregory's assistant) instead. Hooli CEO Gavin Belson is informed about the project by Donald "Jared" Dunn. The app is found to be powered by an algorithm (said to be similar to chirplet transform) designed by Hendriks that has more value than the program: it offers higher compression ratios than MP3 yet remains lossless.
