Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, to Speak at CMU – April 11
One of the people I met this weekend at TEDxCMU is the moderator of the Reddit Pittsburgh – who reminded me that this can be a great source for sharing and finding more information about Pittsburgh.
What is reddit? reddit is a website where people can share links and photos – others can vote those links up or down and leave comments on the links as well. There are sub-reddits for lots of places and topics – including Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh reddit board is – http://www.reddit.com/r/pittsburgh/.
Are you a reddit fan? reddit user? maybe some of the Pittsburgh reddit lovers can share some of their favorite links below.
