I'm feeling a real positive energy and community spirit as a result of the sudden fragmentation of reddit's foundational use base.
And I love how chaotic it is! How there is so much to learn. How each new platform is separate yet somehow meshed in a way that will only become clear with time. I love the performance issues, even -- just because it feels new, like something exciting is happening.
It reminds me of what the net used to be like before everything became just variations of a single beige blob. Reddit's frontpage was essentially churn. There was value in its smaller subs, but after over a decade of use, everything became all too familiar. And looking back, I preferred reddit way more before they changed the up/downvote counter. But that's all in the rear view mirror now.
We're all participating in a huge shift, and it won't be the familiar, convenient, linear path we've all become accustomed to. And I love everybody's optimism and willingness to pitch in to build a better web for future generations.
