Event Details

The popular online TV show, "This Week in Startups" is filming live in NYC! Host Jason Calacanis will have Alexis Ohanian, cofounder of Reddit, join him for a fireside chat on October 10, 2013. 

Reddit calls itself the front page of the internet. Almost. Quantcast ranks it #31 in the U.S.. But with 81 million monthly views worldwide, it’s ahead of CNN and the New York Times. Celebrities, book authors, even President Obama are hosting Ask Me Anything threads to reach that massive audience, which skews young, male and libertarian. Alexis Ohanian and cofounder Steve Huffman started Reddit in the inaugural YCombinator class in 2005. After selling Reddit to Condé Nast in October of 2006, Alexis stayed on until 2010. Now, he invests in companies and advises other young entrepreneurs to have fun, make money, and do good on the internet. His new book is Without Their Permission
