Hi there! We’re /u/washingtonpost. More specifically, we are seven journalists who work at The Washington Post and who post (or lurk!) on reddit often for work and personal use. Ask Us Anything!
Ask us (almost) anything about how we do our jobs, the journalism industry, how we use reddit, or what The Post will be doing with our user profile. Or just chat with us about reddit and the internet -- we love both things as much as you do.
Here’s who's answering questions today, and what they cover:
- /u/GenePark: Gene Park, social media editor and /u/washingtonpost mod
- /u/aohlheiserWaPo: Abby Ohlheiser, Internet culture reporter
- /u/b_fung: Brian Fung, technology reporter, focusing on telecommunications, Internet access
- /u/cingraham: Chris Ingraham, Wonkblog reporter who writes about drug policy and all things data
- /u/e_izadi: Elahe Izadi, pop culture reporter for the Style section
- /u/grotty_planet: Jessica Stahl, editor of social, search and communities (and podcasts!)
- /u/twpinoy: J.J. Alcantara, designer in our products team
We’ll be replying as this account, but we’ll clearly mark who’s saying what. Now let’s talk. Ask us anything!

And here's Chris who works out of the office.
UPDATE: It's 3 p.m.! But we're having so much fun we'll keep answering a few more questions, and even check back later today too.
Thanks to everyone for the great questions and conversations. We all had a ton of fun and we definitely want to do this again. And swing by the /u/washingtonpost profile and let us know what you'd like to see! /u/GenePark will now post an AMA request thread. Let us know who you'd like to talk to.
EDIT: How rude of me. Forgot to thank r/IamA for being such gracious hosts.
