My theory about how this error happened:

Bloomberg reporter checked Wikipedia where it clearly says, "In 2014, Altman was named president of Y Combinator, which he had been a part of as a founder..."[1].

[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Altman

Of course, if the reporter had spent a few more seconds reading the entire sentence he may have gotten it right: "In 2014, Altman was named president of Y Combinator, which he had been a part of as a founder in the first batch of funded companies in 2005."




For fun, look up the history of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Livingston , which was submitted for deletion twice and even now is pretty short.


Oddly, because pg wrote a really lovely piece extolling her contributions and character.
