Looking at who you accept now and some of YCs biggest hits, its seeming like your earlier investments (Dropbox, airbnb) probably wouldn't make it through today's YC filter. Do you guys think this is an issue, if so how are you working to correct it?

Disagree. No one at YC could interview the Airbnb guys and not fund them. I didn't know Drew back then but I expect it would have been the same thing for him.

I think he is not referring to the interview process, but rather to the "skimming through the application" process.

Yeah, I am sure having met them they would have gotten in, im talking purely getting to interview.
