Much of Steve and my inspiration for reddit came from the threaded, used-voted commenting system that Slashdot pioneered. Today reddit sets the agenda for most online media and commentary because the discussions there are so authentic and interesting they're often as good or better than the content itself. We stand on the shoulders of many giants, but Slashdot was the standout. Using the lessons they learned building a community of "nerds" we built a global platform of over 9000 communities.
