About last night’s YC NYC

I went, like many other people, to last night’s YC NYC meetup where Paul Graham and a bunch of YC Alumni talked about YC and what’s it like to start or work for a startup.

Lots of people seem to be upset on twitter because PG placed NYC as #2, behind Silicon Valley, as a startup hub. I think they just took it personally. :-)

It just seemed to me that he was being honest, pointing out the many differences between the two places starting from the weather, the culture of the people, the feel of the place and so on, all of which contribute to a successful (or unsuccessful) startup hub.

This New York Times blog post seems like a more objective view of the event than the twitter stream.
