this wasn't started by just one person, though. granted evan finished it by himself, proving the point below about co-founders leaving.

I think brett was suggesting rambling, angry, posts are better suited for a blog.

Hmm... I don't know what was angry about what I posted. I just saw another "how to get a founder" thread followed close on the heels of a post on another site from someone lamenting that they couldn't find a co-founder.

Sure, it has sucked to when the founders were fighting... but its been years since I went out on my own.

Don't confuse confidence and passion for anger.

There was nothing angry about it. The culture around here borders on a personality cult around Paul Graham, which explains all the "how to get a co-founder" threads.

Thanks for the great essay.

Something I disagree with. This site is part social news and part forum. This is a forum-style post. Fits right in.

Sometimes I prefer to not click through to another site. At least here, I don't have to worry about a painful interface, frivolous widgets, or distracting ads. It's all about the writing and our opinions of it, which is all that really matters to me, anyways.
