Reddit Thrives Under Hands-Off Policy of Advance Publications – NYTimes.com.

This is a great article by David Carr in the 9/2/12 edition of the NYT. I am not a Reddit zealot myself, but I keep going back to it, trying to find the key to why so many tech-heads love it. This is, seemingly, the male version of Pinterest. The Pinterest demographic is overwhelmingly female; the Reddit demo overwhelmingly male.

As a techy markety gay guy, you’d think I’d like them both. …. Maybe I’m just too damn old!

And THAT’S entirely possible. However, if you’re going to keep current, you’d better know what younger people are doing. Today’s young-thinking advice from the aged! LOL
