Ok, we might just admit our stereotype that hackers are not that good looking. But for each individual, he/she may be a black swan.
Someone may start to build a model to predict the probability distribution of genders of Leah Culver's children?
Your use of "Black Swan" isn't correct though, IMO, because black swan refers to things that are decidedly un bell curve like, and while most hackers probably aren't lookers, it's easy to reason that a few will be.
Now, I have some questions about my startup, and I also have a few more questions about Arc, because it's been buggy for me lately. And, Hacker News has been really slow, and we really should ban such and such a site from submitting links here. And the quality of Hacker News... blah.... blah... blah...
Oh, wait, you're on your honeymoon... OOOOHhhhhhh, sorry, my bad.
Congrats PG and Jessica! Coincidentally, your two books sit side by side on my shelf (as I'm sure it does for the YC community).
But anyway, enough with silly thoughts, congrats to pg and jl!
I had once a male friend from England said he met his male soul mate in Italy, I was confused since he is straight, but later I understand what he said is he met one person that just understand what he thinks and likes in music/arts and theoretical physics
And old Chinese term for this case is "zhi ji" means "someone just understands me".
Speaking "warmly" of someone's technical skills/intelligence is an indicator of a sexual interest? I don't get it (seriously).
I just did a site search of paulgraham.com for all mentions of rtm, and the "warmest" mention I found was at http://www.paulgraham.com/heroes.html, which does not seem to me (a heterosexual male if that is of any interest) to indicate anything remotely sexual. Positive? Sure. Exceptionally so? I guess I just don't see it.
Maybe you were referring to some verbal communication you witnessed?
oh I didn't "take it personally". :-)
I am just trying to follow the thought process (which you have explained above ("intended as a joke") . I was wondering whether this tapped into something culturally specific. No insult of any kind intended.
:) Congrats to pg and jl!
Now remember to do the laundry, get the groceries, and load the dishwasher. And get that stuff off the floor!
Joking aside, getting married, together with our recent baby is one of the best things I ever did.
Congratulations, you two! May you have many happy years together.
Expecting a new essay on how this event change your life :)
I never understand the purpose of name change of women after marriage. The ownership doesn't change lately in first world in 21st century.
All he needs is a registration in court office following a simple diner gathering with all his/her best friends and enjoy what life provides.
This explains why he's been inactive on the arclanguage forums.
Neat, I share my wedding anniversary (1 year today!) with pg.
Best wishes to the both of you.
of pg of course
who's the lucky girl?
Maybe the best way to get around same sex marriage issues in U.S. is to allow all same sex couples to form small business partnerships? We know all founders are in fact like couples married to each other.
Now does this mean she owns half of Hacker News? ;)
YC's partners are pg, rtm, tlb, and jl. I don't know whether they all have an equal share.
