What is the story of Paul Graham trying to talk Michael FitzGerald out of starting Submittable?

During Y Combinator, Paul Graham saw a picture of Michael and kids and wanted to make sure that Michael really wanted to do a startup, and to inflict the underlying stress on his family.

FitzGerald said that he was going to build a company, take it back to Montana, and hire 500 people so his own kids would have a place to work, and therefore be able to work and live in Montana.

So far, Michael FitzGerald is keeping with his promise.
