Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian on How the Internet Can Make You a Baller

Posted by on November 3, 2013 in Featured

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian recently sat down with serial entrepreneur and This Week in Startups host Jason Calacanis for an entertaining interview in New York City. This Golden Twist reporter, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, had an opportunity to watch the event live. About 300 people turned out for the live taping of Jason Calacanis’ show, and they stuffed themselves with free sandwiches, chips, and cheese dip of many varieties. They also quaffed some good-old fashioned beer from beer bottles signed by Jason himself (ok, I made that part up, but that would have been funny).

Calacanis and Ohanian had never met each other before, but you wouldn’t know it from the show they put on. At one point, Ohanian and Calacanis looked like they were about to burst into an Abbott and Costello routine. The rowdy crowd enjoyed the act, hollering and loudly clapping throughout the interview. Overall, the Soho event was highly informative and enjoyable. Speaking of Soho, have you ever been on a Ghostbusters tour of NYC?

Anyway, I encourage you to watch the entire video above. Infotainment at its finest–that’s what they call this sort of thing. And the next time Jason takes his This Week and Startups roadshow to your city, grab tickets.
