Will YC ever post videos of talks? I suppose that might take some competitive edge off. It might also be a problem for what is a semi-private meeting, with folks less willing to talk openly. No need to hurt the discussion.

But it would be interesting either way. I suppose the video library of interviews with interesting people is pretty large.


This has come up previously. Speakers are not recorded to allow them to talk off the record, to make offhand remarks that could be taken out of context, to use hyperbole, etc.


I could have sworn last week that I walked past Paul Buchheit as I was getting off the T at Kendall. Now I know I'm not crazy. (I seem to be having a lot of these encounters lately. Today I ran into Matt Maroon on the way to lunch.)


Actually, the talk was two weeks ago, so you might still be crazy. Sorry :(


I think it was on Friday, July 27, which I guess is technically two weeks ago. Were you in Cambridge then?


Nope, I left town on the 26th. Also, I never got off at the Kendall station.


Sorry dfranke I guess it's time to get back on those medications. :)


In the past, we said "omg paul graham what is this Lisp thing and isn't it so amazing?"

Now we say "omg paul buccheit and isn't gmail neato?"

Times have changed.

Too bad the post is so short on details... it feels like reading a an intro without a main article :(


Wonder why he left GOOG.


I hereby unofficially nominate PB as the first additional YCombinator partner.


He invests as an angel in a lot of the companies already in the post-YC round, probably more profitable for him this way.
