Ideas for Startups

Paul Graham (via Larry Borsato:

How do you get good ideas for startups? That’s probably the number one question people ask me.

I’d like to reply with another question: why do people think it’s hard to come up with ideas for startups?

That might seem a stupid thing to ask. Why do they think it’s hard? If people can’t do it, then it is hard, at least for them. Right?
