There are also a bunch of questions that people have prepared over at /r/surface yesterday, I'm sure they'll repost them over in this thread too, but just in case you guys miss it, here is a link to the other thread:

How are you giving 10% of your shares to the reddit community? Can you explain exactly what this means?

Do you mean, you want the reddit community to have control of these shares? I.e. you'll let us vote using these shares, and if the shares are sold, you'll let us decide where the money goes?

Edit: nevermind, found this:

Ok, here it is:


We are thinking about creating a cryptocurrency and making it exchangeable (backed) by those shares of reddit, and then distributing the currency to the community. The investors have explicitly agreed to this in their investment terms.

Nothing like this has ever been done before. Basically we have to nail down how to do each step correctly (it is technically, legally, and financially complex), though in our brief consultation with an ex-SEC lawyer, he stated he could find nothing illegal about this plan. Nevertheless, there are something like 30 different things we have to pull off to make this work, so we're going to try.

(Also, I know this totally contradicts what I said over here but that was before Sam proposed this plan to me, and the idea of being able to distribute ownership of reddit back to the community - a long-held dream of many of us, frankly - is important enough to try and do this)

Again, we want to emphasize that this plan is in its earliest stages right now and could totally fail (if it does, we will find another way to get the shares to the community somehow), but we are going to try it because... well, because we are reddit and we do these kinds of things.

The old covers seem to work with the Surface 3 (and vice versa), but they obviously don't fit very well because the machines are different sizes.

It's got a fairly strong title, the autonomous cars thing is pretty popular. Lots of people might upvote it without actually opening the thread.
