What do you think about the economic disruption that is being caused be increased automation? As we develop broader and broader forms of automation, it seems like that disruption can only increase in both speed and quantity.

What can YC and Silicon Valley as a whole to mitigate the problems this will cause?

I think that technology increases wealth but also concentrates it. We are all better off, but the inequality is likely to get worse over time. This has been going to some degree since the first tools were developed.

I'm not ready to talk in much detail yet, but I do think YC/SV/me personally can and should help address this.
