They're all around you, they could be your boss, your neighbor, or even your significant other. No, not pod people, but Redditors: users of the massive information-sharing website, Reddit. It's not as well-known as Twitter or Facebook, but Reddit has a streetwise and in-the-know user base, giving it a powerful underground edge. And with over 50 million users, it's one of the most popular websites in existence. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian is bringing his net savvy—and his adorable alien mascot—to Tree City as part of his Without Their Permission tour, a nationwide trek to promote internet entrepreneurship in America. It's all part of promoting his new book, Without Their Permission: How The 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed.

Monday, October 21. Exact Time and location TBA. Free. UM Campus.
