REDDIT has become the homepage of the internet. Founded in 2005, Reddit quickly grew into an influential community that decides what is important on the web. Reddit generates information and new content and gives birth to collaborative projects. The Reddit community has become so active that it has had an impact on recent political events like SOPA/CISPA. And like any real-world community, it also has its share of internal social issues, forcing it to grapple with its commitment to free speech and the lawlessness of the internet.
