May 11, 2020  • Society of Fellows

This program features Steve Huffman, CEO and co-founder of Reddit, in conversation with Christine Lagorio-Chafkin, senior writer at and Inc. magazine, about the community and the platform Huffman built 15 years ago. Guided by Lagorio-Chafkin, who authored the seminal book about the history of Reddit, “We are the Nerds,” Huffman shares insights into why the Reddit community-based model is differentiated from other companies in the space, reflects on Reddit’s history and also the company’s vision for the next 15 years, and delves into a myriad of issues such as privacy, navigating tech giants and the complexities of humans talking about politics online.
