Interview With Alexis Ohanian
Excerpt from interview:
Were you surprised by reddit's explosion in popularity these past couple years?
Nope, this was all part of the plan.
Well actually, it's been a real lesson in persistence. We made decisions in the early years that definitely hampered growth (e.g., keeping a level playing field by punishing cheaters and striving to build a site without power-users) but put reddit in a better long-term position as we handed over more and more control to our community.
I'd always hoped it would tip over at some point, I just didn't think it would happen so suddenly -- thanks in large part to digg's self-destruction.
