Hacker News is a social news website about computer hacking and startup companies, run by Paul Graham's funding firm Y Combinator. It is different from other social news websites in that there is no option to down vote submissions, it can either be voted up or not voted on at all. In contrast, comments can be down voted after a user accumulates sufficient karma, or points gained when submissions or comments are voted up. In general, content that can be submitted is defined as anything that gratifies one's intellectual curiosity. The site was created by Paul Graham in February 2007. Initially it was called Startup News or occasionally News.YC. In 2007 it became known by its current name. The intention was to recreate a community similar to the early days of Reddit.
Based on internet averages, ycombinator.com is visited more frequently by males who are in the age range 25-34, have No children and browse this site from work.
