Read it on reddit

One of the first sites I visit in the morning is reddit.


# reddit is a source for what’s new and popular on the web. Users like you provide all of the content and decide, through voting, what’s good (Up) and what’s junk (Down). Links that receive community approval bubble up towards #1, so the front page is constantly in motion and (hopefully) filled with fresh, interesting links.

Hugely popular, if you happen to get on the front page, it could spell great things or bad times ahead. Whatever makes the front page, could end up being front page news in mainstream media.

Judge William Adams using a belt to discipline his daughter would not of been such a big deal when I was growing up, but in today’s connected world, it turned into a huge story. With every laptop computer and smart phone equipped with a camera, my aunt would think twice before beating up on my cousin nowadays. Progress, you betcha.

Not a day goes by that I don’t see a story on some mainstream media website or cable channel that I saw first on reddit. The upvotes of reddit are uber-powerful, as is the power of the internet. But this new found power that we the people possess is very scary to those in real power, so keep an eye on the Stop Online Piracy Act. Scary, you betcha.
