One of the most remarkable parts of the Reddit story is how quickly the site was sold — launched in 2005 by Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman, and acquired the next year by Conde Nast.
Given everything that has happened since the acquisition, does Ohanian have any regrets about selling Reddit so quickly?
That’s one of the questions I was able to ask him during a recent discussion on stage at Seattle’s Town Hall, as part of Ohanian’s tour promoting his book, Without Their Permission. This week on the GeekWire radio show, we’re listening back to some of the best moments from the talk.
