Startup ideas

Mar 2012

Graham suggests creating a search engine that could challenge Google, replacing universities with other types of education, and writing code that could make several CPUs look to developers like one fast CPU.

The way to win here is to build the search engine all the hackers use. A search engine whose users consisted of the top 10,000 hackers and no one else would be in a very powerful position despite its small size, just as Google was when it was that search engine.
