Alexis Ohanian co-founded Reddit out of his dorm room at the University of Virginia. As a leader of the grass-roots movement that overturned Congress’s Stop Online Piracy Act and Senate IP Protection Act, he earned a spot in The Daily Dot’s top ten most influential Internet Rights activists of 2012 and was dubbed the “Mayor of the Internet” by Forbes. Still, as you’ll discover in this episode, Alexis is an incredibly down-to-earth guy with a great sense of humor. On today’s show, Alexis, Bryan and Hunter talk about Alexis’ book Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed. As more and more individuals use the internet to innovate and create better and better business opportunities, there’s plenty of reasons to be optimistic. However, there are things we need to do to ensure those freedoms.
Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed is available from all major booksellers. Alexis can be followed on twitter @alexisohanian.
