Online community creating real-world change (and pizza).

Give People the Power, We’ll Trust the Best Stuff will Bubble Up.

As a new media journalist, as an entrepreneur, as a believer in democracy…this site has been a revelation. I’d tell you why, but I have to get back to reading Reddit.

It’s not perfect. But if you get on Reddit, and dive in, you’ll see that its faults are, like democracy, merely problems waiting for solutions.

  3. […] I hope to learn something new every day. So far today I’ve learned that Bard Rock chickens are hardy and like New England winters, in the Nicobar Islands, coconuts are used as currency and the largest international sperm bank doesn’t allow red headed donors (thanks, Reddit). […]

  4. […] 1. Kill the news. The only stuff worth reading is on sites that look like they aren’t worth reading or from people with a vested interest in the truth.
