IAmAlexis Ohanian, startup founder, internet activist, and cat owner - AMA
I founded a site called reddit back in 2005 with Steve "spez" Huffman, which I have the pleasure of serving on the board. After we were acquired, I started a social enterprise called breadpig to publish books and geeky things in order to donate the profits to worthy causes ($200K so far!). After 3 months volunteering in Armenia as a kiva fellow I helped Steve and our friend Adam launch a travel search website called hipmunk where I ran marketing/pr/community-stuff for a year and change before SOPA/PIPA became my life.
I've taken all these lessons and put them into a class I've been teaching around the world called "Make Something People Love" and as of today it's an e-book published by Hyperink. The e-book and video scale a lot better than I do.
You have no idea how much this site means to me and I will forever be grateful for what it has done (and continues to do) for me. Thank you.
Oh, and AMA.
