OFF BOOK: The Culture of Reddit

Warning: This video contains mature language and content. Viewer Discretion is advised.

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)
