Reddit and community journalism
AUGUST 13, 2011
I’ve come to love Reddit. What started as a better Digg (and is yet another happy outcome of the remarkable Y Combinator ) has turned into a way of sharing and interrogating news. Reddit as it stands is not the future of news. It is, however, a hope for news. As at other sites, at Reddit readers post items they find interesting. Some come from the media, but many are home-made ideas, photos, drawings, videos, etc.
