@Lofenyy Im pretty sure Paul Graham wrote HN in ARC and Alexis and Steve pitched him reddit and he invested and gave them some important feedback that became what we know today as reddit.
@dansup Pretty cool! Didn't know! What was Aaron Swartz' role with Reddit then?
@Lofenyy Pretty sure he was in YC and Paul convinced him to join Alexis and Steve where he went on to write the web.py framework they used for a while! Then he started Demand Progress
@dansup What's YC?
@dansup Very interesting guy. Wish he was still around.
