Paul Graham will be talking about generating ideas for startups. "Most
startups begin with an idea. Often, it's something the founders have
been mulling over for years. In this talk, I'll describe what makes a
good idea for a startup, and the best sources of such ideas."

Paul is an essayist, programmer, and programming language designer. In
1995 he developed with Robert Morris the first web-based application,
Viaweb, which was acquired by Yahoo in 1998. In 2002 he described a
simple Bayesian spam filter that inspired most current filters. He's
currently working on a new programming language called Arc, a new book
(probably) for O'Reilly, and is one of the partners in Y Combinator.
He's also funding me.
