Startup school

Went to Startup School today. Personal highlights:

  1. Max Levchin, a founder of PayPal, steps up to the podium to connect his laptop and the Stanford Google map appears on the screen. Always nice to find out that stuff you make is actually being used. If Internet celebrities use it too, that's even nicer.

  2. The current founders of the Y-Combinator program get on stage in the last session of the day and one of the guys looks like the Bill Gates icon on Slashdot (i.e. android). He says "I'm Justin from" Intrigued, I visit the site and I'm presented a live stream of his point of view, being a view of the crowd I'm sitting in. Surreal.
