An Interview with Dot-com Jedi Alexis Ohanian.

Nice Q&A with a self-declared Armenian-American tech geek. Maybe he’ll stop by GTech soon.

Alexis Ohanian is a celebrity in the tech world. In 2005, at the ripe age of 22, he and a fellow alumnus from the University of Virginia, Steve Huffman, started a social news website named Reddit. The site takes advantage of the collaborative nature of behavior online and allows users to post links to stories or original material, which is in turn voted on by users and selected for consideration by other readers. The pair sold their site in 2006 to Conde Nast for an undisclosed amount but Ohanian continued to “doodle the Reddit alien,” as he says, until “retiring” for a Kiva Fellowship in Armenia.
