These 4 charts from Y Combinator show where tech is headed

Renowned startup incubator Y Combinator and the Priceonomics Data Studio analyzed eight years of incubator applications to see what competitors and technologies startups mentioned in their apps.

Here are some highlights from what they found (all charts are from this post by YC partner Jared Friedman — see all the charts here):

1. Blogging is so 2008

2. Everybody wants to be Uber (or Airbnb, or Instagram)

3. Bitcoin may have peaked, but the blockchain is still hot

4. Everyone really is on Slack these days
