Q

You seem to balance business and fun fairly well. Any advice / methods / recommendations on cultivating this within an established but small organization?
Thanks,
bjprat

Delegation to more awesome people is a big part of it. I recently did a Q&A and interview of lifehacker that covers a lot more of this in detail: http://lifehacker.com/5936590/im-alexis-...

Q

Are you at least partially Armenian?

Half! And I spent three months in Yerevan volunteering as a kiva.org fellow after my reddit contract ended. http://fellowsblog.kiva.org/2010/03/03/a...

Q

hey ohanian i'm sure you're busy so i understand if you don't answer this question. from one armenian to another. I've never seen you use reddit to spread awareness about the armenian genocide.

That's not how the site works; reddit is a platform where users find, create, and vote on the content - as founders Steve and I don't exercise any editorial control. However, do a quick search and you'll find no shortage of content on the genocide, which redditors themselves have deemed important: http://www.reddit.com/search?q=armenian+...

Just saw you on CBS... Amazing guy! Dave Karp was on yesterday. Thanks to you two for making NYC the East Coast Silicon Valley. Do you plan on staying?

Thanks! I was born in New York and I bought a home here when I moved back from the Bay Area a couple years ago (I was there per the reddit acquisition, we moved the company to SF from Boston) -- no plans to leave! I heart NY.

Q

Alexis, will you be coming to the UK?


Alexis Ohanian responded on 08/07/2012
A

I sure hope so! I'm hoping my book tour takes me there. You can help by telling everyone you know about my book (and me!) so that it sells out -- then once I'm bigger than Shakespeare I'll tour the UK for a year.

Q

What are the chances you'll do another AMA? Maybe to promote the book?

Another one? Hmm, I just did this one: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/vf... to promote my e-book. I'll definitely do one next fall after I've got another year under my belt and Without Your Permission to publicize -- first stop on the press tour!
