Be very careful with this. People who thrive for this lifestyle already know about it, and are already excited (for example, you).
Startups are very hard to do, with many lows. It's easy to keep people excited during the highs, but if you have a partner that is a negative person, or cannot find intrinsic motivation, when problems hit they will either become part of the problem (ie, will have non-constructive input) or drop out and leave you hanging with the debts/unfinished product/etc.
So yeah, show them the articles you mention, but wait to see if they get some motivation on their own.
Some people are just not made to be entrepreneurs, so don't get a partner who is really smart, but expects a steady paycheck and all the other trappings of an employee lifestyle. You might want to hire that person, but do not make the mistake of making that person a partner. I say this from first-hand experience :-).
EDIT: The reason I say to not try too hard to get your friend into a startup is because you run the risk of making that person feel forced into it (who would want to let down a friend?). If you force someone into this, you will find out later that they are not really cut out for this, and big trouble will ensue (and you will lose the friendship on top of everything).
