More & more publishers tools are coming! Redditors get cited & writers get awesome content for their articles--everyone wins. Another great piece from Hayley Tsukayama.

Story
Tagline
Startup guy who wants to make the world suck less & doodles all his own logos.
Introduction
Guten Tag! I'm a startup guy in Brooklyn who gave a TED talk about a whale. TechCrunch calls me "one of the more passionate and audacious young entrepreneurs in tech." Hide your kids - especially because I'm writing a book called Without Your Permission.

After graduating from UVA, I started reddit.com with Steve Huffman. Founded Breadpig, which creates geeky things, sells them, and gives away all the profits -- over $190,000 so far; things like: xkcd: volume 0, AwesomeSauce, LOLMagnetz, WTFCNN?!, Save Yourself, Mammal!, and a fake Rock Band.

Helped launch hipmunk -- ran marketing, PR, and logo-doodling -- presently an advisor. Ambassador to the East for Y Combinator. Angel investor at Das Kapital Capital, LLC.

Once rendered in CGI on NMA.TV. Bloomberg TV contributor. And my favorite: Stephen Colbert once gave me a shoutout.

If you've ever told someone about any of my projects, I owe you a beer. (Thanks!)

And if you're interested in having me speak -- I do it to fund my hummus addiction -- please email my agent.
Bragging rights
Co-founded reddit, gave a TED talk, and can eat more hummus than you.
