Alexis Ohanian


Co-Founder, Reddit, Founder, BreadPig

The great thing about the Internet is, it's the freest marketplace of ideas that there is.

Alexis Ohanian is the co-founder of Reddit, one of the web's most striking examples of democracy in action. Reddit is a platform for "social news," where the readers themselves control the front page by voting on stories. Ohanian is the founder of Breadpig, a hub for geeky books and merchandise where all the profits are donated to charity. In early 2010, he spent three months in Armenia as a Kiva Fellow.
