    How viable are they? First thing I think of when I hear “ten year old startup” is that they are never going to make it. Not necessarily true in this case (or many other cases), but honestly that’s what I thought when I read your first sentence.

      Jerry, you’re reading what you want to see. No where in Fred’s post does the word “startup” appear.

    It’s really just the beginning. Y Combinator is an experiment, right? So they are learning a lot from this experience, and I’m not surprised that after only 4 years they haven’t dented Wall Street yet. Unless this is 1999, it usually takes at least 5 – 10 years to do that.So it is important to read what Paul Graham writes simply because he learns things — not everyone from Ivy League or MIT or Stanford comes across as smart; one of the key elements is that the doctrine of the elect applies to startups; launch and iterate — and passes it along to all of us for free.I’m excited that startup scenes are cropping up across the USA. They act as a sort of filter, but inevitably some will be more successful than others. Y Combinator and TechStars seem to be strong, and I like Founders Co-op in Seattle. Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Philly, and D.C. could make it happen with their yc clones.Maybe we will learn something about the process that is essential to achieving IPO.
