I interviewed the founder and not the PR person of the company. Definitely going straight to the founders is important because they were the only ones who were there.

We were kind of thinking about a problem, and thinking we could do some cool things to solve it. We started this by accident, and never realized it would become as big as it has.

Well, I've now seen more than a thousand companies go through YC, so I'm very familiar what these companies do during YC.

We wanted to help startups at whatever stage they’re in become a billion-dollar company.

The most successful founders I have noticed are totally focused on two things, building their product and making something people want, which of course, is our motto, and talking to their users.

We always wanted to fund the best startups

I think it's important to know all of those details to be able to make wise decisions. So I am excited; there is a lot of interesting stuff I get to learn now about a site that I've enjoyed for years as a user.

I liked computers when I was young.  My parents didn’t quite let me spend as much time on them (mostly because I would just play computer games) so when I went to college, I naturally majored in computer science.

I think the thing that's been most surprising to me is that a lot of how reddit looks like from the outside is actually what's going on in the inside. It's very transparent.

One of the reasons reddit is great is because it’s a successful merging of effective community management and technology. Being able to run a site well (e.g. efficiently, correctly, reliably) is a key feature of the product.

We drive an enormous amount of traffic, far out of proportion to our size and costs: reddit has a full-time staff of around 10 people, which is more like something you'd see at a very new startup.

After being "incubated" for a number of years, reddit has really begun to take off, so Advance decided that we needed the autonomy of being independent rather than being a wholly-owned subsidiary.

The job as CEO of reddit is incredibly stressful and draining. After two and a half years, I'm basically completely worn out, and it was having significantly detrimental effects on my personal life.

All of the reasons that Sam Altman has outlined in public are true. I know it sounds somewhat unbelievable because it's so weird, but if it were made up, I think any PR person would have come up with a better made-up story.

When you take investment, you don’t (can’t) just ride off into the sunset with the money. It’s not the same as selling your business and taking a payout. It’s an investment, intended to be used to make the site better and more useful for all the users, which is our plan.
