Last night Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of the social news site reddit, was interviewed onstage by AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco for a live “Ask Me Anything”” event for his book. Ohanian recently authored Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed and is currently on an impressive nationwide tour that includes many colleges and universities.
Eddie Codel livestreamed last night’s event and that video is available to view at YouTube. Swisher wrote a short piece about the show at AllThingsD titled “Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian Needs No Permission.”
Reddit Founder Ohanian is ready to bare it all. INFORUM is going reddit-style with an AMA Live (Ask Me Anything) with Ohanian – so come ready to put this serial entrepreneur in the hot seat. He has funded startups through his company Das Kapital Capital, worked in Armenia for three months as a Kiva Fellow, and successfully led a campaign to overturn two Internet-affecting congressional bills. In his latest endeavor, Ohanian has taken to long form with his book Without Their Permission, detailing what the future of the Internet holds for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Join us as we give Ohanian the third degree, live at INFORUM – and you won’t miss a beat as we document the AMA with a real-time reddit stream. You’ll also enjoy delicacies from the all-things-delicious online marketplace Golbely at our Premium Reception, and afterward listen to a live jam from Kickstarter-funded music legend Lester Chambers.
