Description

Warning: This episode contains mature subject matter. Since its creation in 2005, Reddit has grown into one of the most influential communities on the internet. More than just a content aggregator, it generates information and new content, and has given birth to intriguing collaborative projects that reflect a particular group character and value system. The Reddit community has become so active that it has had an impact on recent political events like SOPA/CISPA. And like any real-world community, it also has its share of internal social issues, forcing it to grapple with its commitment to free speech and the lawlessness of the internet. Featuring: Alexis Ohanian, Co-Founder of Reddit Blair Drager, Editor of The Redditor Kevin Morris, Daily Dot Blogger Stephen Bruckert, Memefactory Researcher Dworkin & The other mod, Shit Reddit Says Moderators (appearing anonymously) Music by: Dexter Britain - http://soundcloud.com/dexterbritain Minusbaby - http://minusbaby.com/ Mindthings - http://www.mindthings.net/ Yusuke Tsutsumi - http://soundcloud.com/yusuke-tsutsumi Binarpilot - http://binaerpilot.no/ Follow Off Book: Twitter: @pbsoffbook Tumblr: http://pbsarts.tumblr.com/ Produced by Kornhaber Brown: http://www.kornhaberbrown.com
