I can't believe no one asked this yet:
Did you type the book yourself and how long did it take you?
I'll see myself out ...

I always felt Reddit was an evolution of Usenet groups. Do you see a future where Usenet evolves again and becomes a better and decentralized Reddit?
Usenet was always anonymous and decentralized, but the big evolution leading to user adoption since then has been post scoring (since slashdot) and upvotes/downvotes and karma - or basically gamification.
This usually requires user registration and accounts in a central database. But since then a number of federated identity systems have developed, as well as private/public key methods of keeping an anonymous yet decentralized identity and scores (cough blockchain cough).
Along with a modern client supporting seamless image and video posting (or a better binary storage system than uuenncode), this would be a really cool thing.
Any such plans?

Last time I was on Usenet I was using tin on Linux. :)
