These adorable sysadmin posters dug up by Redditor evandena remind you of all the things you should know. Get a better password. Information is valuable and stuff. Back-up your shit already. Why are we even having this conversation? C:/DOS vintage graphics though, oomph. (Images: Reddit) […]

Yesterday, Redditor thehofstetter begat a passionate thread by presenting the above map for New York transplants in Los Angeles, allegedly, putting “Manhattan,” “Brooklyn,” “Upstate,” “Poor New Jersey” and “Rich New Jersey” over various spread our areas of Los Angeles County. It’s not very helpful or accurate. Someone who grew up in LA, i_am_food, presented this much-improved map… …but […]

Redditor dakisking created the above map, which charts the nations with a smaller population than the New York metro area (including Long Island and parts of Jersey, Connecticut, and the Hudson Valley). Those areas, together with the five boroughs, make for 19.9 million people in total, and a surprising number of countries don’t measure up. I’m […]

There were some interesting tidbits to be gleaned from Tim Berners-Lee’s Reddit Ask Me Anything yesterday — he almost called the World Wide Web “The Mesh,” for instance — but the format makes it, like all AMAs somewhat difficult to parse. The subject’s responses are given little privilege over the ordinary commenter’s, and infinitely nested […]

In a Reddit AMA yesterday, World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee revealed the terrible alternate names he considered for his most famous creation: “The Information Mine,” “The Mine of Information,” and “The Mesh.” “None had quite the right ring,” he added. He also offered up opinions on more consequential topics. On Snowden: I think he […]

Goatse.cx, the greatest website ever made, is dead. The site, infamous for hosting an image of a man stretching his anus out to an impressive width, while his penis drooped below, a solitary gold ring sparkling on his left hand, now shows a YouTube video depicting a “lawyer” rambling about the digital currency Dogecoin. He can’t even say […]

Russian news organization Russia Today has recently been banned from the popular Reddit forum r/news for allegedly spamming and manipulating upvotes on the thread, subsequently promoting its own stories as not only factual, but popular on the site as well. Doesn’t that sound just a little bit like propaganda to you? However, fans of the news organization have equated this […]

According to Redditor JayDubz, who snapped the above photo, Tracy Morgan was driving down 7th Avenue in his Porsche, listening to his own standup. No word on when. A quick Googling (which Tracy is sure to appreciate) of the phone number on the awning in the full photo reveals Morgan was indeed on 7th, just down […]

Whether you hunt and slaughter your own meat or won’t eat anything that casts a shadow, this is the most life-affirming video on Reddit today and you should watch it. See, little Luiz Antonio just realized that the octopus he’s eating is “real” and it doesn’t have a head because a man at the market chopped […]

Reddit is huge, almost unfathomably so. To a lurker like myself, it can be difficult to understand the inner workings and connections beyond a few big subreddits, like AdviceAnimals, IAmA, and, uh, NSFW Science. Thanksfully, redditor sharkbait784 created this interactive data visualization, which maps the connections between subs based on the number of times each sub […]
