If this theory is true, that the advantage of young entrepreneurs is their lack of experience and hence lack of knowledge about what could possibly go wrong, then age is actually not the issue, it's experience in the field. So for older entrepreneurs (30+) that are entering the tech startup world for the first time, they would share the ignorance benefit (assuming this is a benefit)

I suppose you could also say that reading news.YC makes you a worse entrepreneur! You're learning the rules that others before you have held true instead of just making up your own from scratch.

Damn, you're right. I'm outta here! :)
