Paul Graham Responds To Critics, Says Y Combinator Is Planning An Event For Female Founders
Y Combinator co-founder Paul Graham just published a blog post about what he did and didn't say during a widely-discussed interview with The Information (if you don't have a subscription, you can read the relevant quotes in Valleywag). He also makes an announcement, of sorts, that the incubator is planning an event for female founders later this year. As many of you've probably read, Graham attracted lots of controversy for his remarks about getting women interesting programming and hacking. (TechCrunch's Colleen Taylor weighed in here.) However, Graham claimed in a tweet, and reiterated in the post, that his meaning had been distorted.
