Exploring Reddit


I’m probably the last person on the planet, at least the Internet connected planet, to discover Reddit, which I did a couple of years ago. Every once in a while it’s fun to see what the “front page” is reporting. Here are few favorites from Thursday February 19:

  • Mount Fuji overlooking Yokohama is restoring my desire to visit Japan even if the image was PhotoShopped. Credit: 500pix.com. The haiku in the comments are not that great, especially as the syllable count was all over the place, and people couldn’t agree. (It’s five-seven-five.)
  • “They should put a tiny message at the end of chapstick tubes congratulating you for not losing the damn thing.” This thread devolved into a discussion of Burt’s Bees and the fight that broke up the company.
  • From Web & Techs  “5,800 Off-Grid Pakistan Homes To Be Powered by Solar Energy.” Pakistanis seem underwhelmed and cynical that the project will ever be completed. Other folk are sure that the panels will be stolen as soon as installed. Sad.
