A good Quarterly mailing should tell a story. And in Alexis Ohanian’s latest, the entrepreneur and “President of the Internet” gave us a glimpse into the beginning, middle, and end of his most famous venture: reddit.
"I’ve included a annotated copy of Masters of Doom,” Alexis wrote in his letter. “Reddit wouldn’t have existed if Steve Huffman hadn’t lent me this book during our sophomore year at UVA.”
Fast forward a few years from Alexis getting inspiration, and you have the delightful subreddit /r/shutupandtakemymoney, the “end” part of this story. Included were two delectable snacks it featured: PB Crave Cookie Nookie, and Emoticandy from Raley’s Confecionary.
Last up was the middle: a postcard for Alexis’s new book, Without Their Permission, which is about how to change the world. In short, it’s how to get from an inspiring book to a subreddit. “We’re a generation with unparalleled opportunity, and I want everyone to take advantage of that fact,” Alexis wrote.
