Sam Altman quotes

Feb 22 2017

We especially like founders who have some sort of non-traditional background; we are somewhat suspicious of founders with extremely 'tracked' lives. Start-ups are not a resume item, and we don't like founders who view YC as a stop on the way to B-school.feedback

Companies that don't have this usually have a hard time recruiting enough great people to work with them, and thus struggle to become very large.feedback

Feb 15 2017 - Immigration

Although I'm willing to believe that in a normal environment immigration puts some downward pressure on wages, I think the fact that we can have these giant wages for software engineers is a factor of how powerful these companies have gotten. [One reason tech] companies have become so powerful and valuable is because of immigrants.feedback

This guy Anthony incredible. One of the cool things has been that many big YC companies have said whatever we can do – free services, discounts – multiply that by 10, [and that's] what we'll do for the ACLU.

We'll be a small contributor.feedback

This has been a strain on my relationship.feedback

It's not a lack of judgment that leads Americans to vote for Trump; we're voting for Trump because we judge the leadership of our country to have failed.feedback

Oct 07 2016 - Tesla

These phones already control us. The merge has begun–and a merge is our best scenario. Any version without a merge will have conflict: we enslave the AI or it enslaves us. The full-on-crazy version of the merge is we get our brains uploaded into the cloud. I'd love that.feedback

Jul 06 2016

We're seriously interested in building new cities and we think we know how to finance it if everything else makes sense.feedback

Jul 06 2016

I guess what I would say in both of these is that they are research projects and meant in the spirit of that, which means it's not like YC is going to build a new city, nor is YC going to fund nationwide basic income.feedback
