Obama, Romney Education Advisers Debate Role Of Federal Government

October 16, 2012 |

NEW YORK — When it comes to the nuts and bolts of education policy, a topic that ranks high among the concerns of female and Latino voters, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are remarkably similar: both think standardized tests are important, that teachers need to be evaluated rigorously, and that charter schools are an important component of America’s educational landscape.

So at a Monday night debate at Columbia University’s Teachers College, the education advisers of both presidential candidates tried to spotlight differences. What it boils down to, both said, is the federal government’s role in education.

What Would Paul Graham Do? — A Search Engine That Teaches You The Ways Of Y Combinator’s Boss

October 16, 2012 |

WWPG

“When should I raise money?” You might not be able to ask startup sage PG in person, but new search engine “What Would Paul Graham Do?” will point you towards the YC co-founder’s most relevant essays and Hacker News comments.

In this case, you’d be directed to “A Fundraising Survival Guide”, and “The 18 Mistakes That Kill Startups”. The site turns Graham into a one-man Quora.

Adnan Akhil, one of the guys behind WWPGD said on Hacker News “It’s really just a tool we built for ourselves to get information from a specific trusted source. It helps that he has a huge catalog of work to draw from.” You can explore Graham’s library of essays here.

That’s not to say WWPGD is going to give the real Paul a run for his money. HN user riffraff notes that questions like ”How to grow a userbase” or “How do I find find a mentor” don’t produce any results.

It’s got more than just entrepreneurship advice, too. It can accurately teach you how to live like Paul, or even run into him. Graham himself commented on Hacker News saying “It appears to work. I asked it where to go for lunch, and the first reference to lunch it found was Oren’s Hummus.” That’s one of his favorite restaurants in downtown Palo Alto.

Maybe that was one of the motives for Akhil and WWPGD co-creator Kevin Wu. We’ve seen lots of spunky young technologists building “Here’s why you should hire me” apps and pulling other stunts to land dream jobs. Maybe their search engine will fast-track them to a spot in PG’s Winter 2013 Y Combinator class.

Here’s some recent gems from Graham’s collection of essays:
