Y Combinator has been called many things. Harvard for startups. A sign of the bubble. A great way to gauge the future of the technology industry. However, as Ben Parr notes in his piece for CNET, Y Combinator is actually more like Disneyland for startups. The thinking is that YC is something that people will pay to visit, and although the ride may be short lived, it will be one heck of a ride while it is going on. It’s the most apt description I’ve seen so far.
