Enjoy lunch with Paul Buchheit, partner at Y-Combinator and creator of Gmail, in Mountain View, CA.

Paul Buchheit is an American computer programmer and entrepreneur. He was the creator and lead developer of Gmail. He developed the original prototype of Google AdSense as part of his work on Gmail. He also suggested Google's former company motto "Don't be evil" in a 2000 meeting on company values. Buchheit grew up in New York. He attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio where he rowed crew. Buchheit worked at Intel and later became the 23rd employee at Google. At Google he began developing Gmail in 2001, with its innovations in search and storage. He also prompted what would become AdSense. Leaving Google in 2006, Buchheit started FriendFeed, which was launched in 2007 and was acquired by Facebook in 2009 in a private transaction.

In 2010, Buchheit left Facebook to become a partner at the investment firm Y Combinator. From 2006 (when he started investing) until 2008, Buchheit invested about $1.21 million in 32 different companies. He also continues to oversee angel investments of his own in ~40 startups. He won the 2011 The Economist Innovation Awards for the Computing and telecommunications field.
