Earlier today we reported that Paul Buchheit, who created Gmail and founded FriendFeed,was leaving Facebook to join Y Combinator. We caught up with Buchheit on his last day at Facebook.


It’s interesting that Paul is leaving Facebook before an IPO (Initial Public Offering) happens. There is more to life than money when you have enough to walk away from what might be a huge payday.

On a somewhat related note, the EconTalk podcast did an interview with Paul not long after Facebook acquired his startup Friendfeed. You can find the episode on EconTalk here.
