What makes you qualified to run Ycombinator above any of the other partners?

I believe any of us could do it.

Thanks for the response. I'm just curious about what process pg went through to choose you, if you're privy to that. Obviously, he spent many years doing a lot of experimenting to get to his "finished product". And when he decided to leave, he chose you. Do you have any insight as to what in particular he felt you had that felt you would be the best choice?

Maybe there's more to add, but pg did explain why they felt Sam was the best choice: http://blog.ycombinator.com/sam-altman-for-president
