The inside story on how Reddit was created: β€˜I wanted to make the world suck less’

In college, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian told a professor that he wanted to make the world suck less. A Total Disruption has just released a new video showing exactly how he accomplished that goal.


"Suck less" is a double negative.

"Make the world better" is the same goal without the double negative.

But this explains a lot. Reddit was started with a double negative.Β 

Google's motto is a negative as well, right?Β 

"Don't be evil" vs. "Do good"

Β Really great post! Thank you for sharing that!
