I use Reddit for, but not limited to: reading discussions about the latest episode of some show/movie that I was/am watching, seeing fan art, finding memes(or other funny pictures), staying up to date on world news, and finding new and interesting things that I would've never known about.

Users can "upvote" or "downvote" different articles, texts, or pictures with the simple click of an up arrow or a down arrow. The up arrow gives the discussion more points, which sends it up higher to make it easier to be seen by more people, while the down arrow sends it down into "downvote hell".

The main page of reddit can be broken down into two, more often used, sections. The "front page", which is made up of subreddits(I'll discuss this soon) and the "All" page, which is everything on reddit. I do mean everything...so there's some...stuff that might appear on the front page from time to time that's really NSFW/L. Thankfully, they mark everything that's NSFW/L for users, just to keep them safe if they're not using their own personal computers. They're nice like that.

The All page consists of everything that's submitted to reddit, as mentioned earlier, users upvote various discussions, which can cause something to appear on the first page of reddit. These are the "fruit of the day" sort of things where they are only at the top for a day, then get replaced by the next days popular discussions.

The Front page consists of all of your subscribed to "subreddits". A subreddit is a subsection of reddit, divided off to only focus on a particular subject. Perhaps you're into Game of Thrones? There's a subreddit for that. Maybe you're into Pokemon? There's a subreddit for that. You could be a fitness nut. There's a subreddit for that too. There's a subreddit for just about any community, big or small. The bigger the subreddit, the more likely their stuff is to appear on the "All" page of reddit, which makes it more likely for people to see....which then could increase the community size. Thankfully, there are moderators for each subreddit to keep everything in check.

One of my favorite little features is called an AMA, which stands for "ask me anything". This is typically used by celebrities to allow users to ask them questions, then reply to said questions in a discussion thread. Which, by the way, each thread can be upvoted and downvoted, sending each thread to the top of the discussion page or the bottom.

Confused? Sorry....however, there's a lot more to it, which we could get into...however, who wants to read a ten page review for a website? Check it out for yourself, it's fun, fast, and fairly "easy" to use...so long as you know what to avoid. Oh yeah, there's some WEIRD stuff on there, like really weird. You know your uncle Chuck? The one that is always saying those weird things about the government or aliens? The uncle that your parents wish you never met, but you have to see every Thanksgiving or Christmas? Oh yeah, he's probably there too.

Sound like a lot? Yes, yes it is. It takes some time to get used to, but once you figure it all out, it's really a piece of cake. I was, thankfully, shown how to use reddit by a friend of mine which allowed me to just jump right on into it. So, have fun. Discover what you will on Reddit, "the front page of the internet".

Ars Technica

by tb2571989

I started reading Ars Technica after leaving LifeHacker as I wasn't a fan of the re-design. I still find myself back every now and then, but Ars is one of my daily check-ups.

One of Ars' strengths is the seriously in-depth articles and reviews. The ridiculious but fascinating 40,00...

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

The History of Byzantium

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.

It's so amazing that we have the opportunity to listen to so many years of history is such a fine detail. It's a marvel of the modern world. Thanks for doing this, Robin!
