Nothing makes me happier than when established YC founders help the new ones. Fortunately they seem to be very willing to. When I ask established founders to help new ones, 95% of the time they do more than I ask.

This is not just a Y Combinator thing. There's a sort of brotherhood of founders that derives from the fact that no one else knows what it's like. YC just has a culture of accelerating this natural tendency.

I never realized this before, but this means that when press and/or haters (not always disjoint sets) attack particular startups or startups generally, it actually makes the bond between founders stronger, because now they have another unique, shared problem.
