There is a new episode in the PBS Off Book series about the famous content aggregator, Reddit. The eight minute video inspects the qualities of Reddit beyond just content aggregation — the community, the hive-mind's desire for truth, and how the voting system captures the zeitgeist of the internet. It also casts a critical eye on some of the darker aspects of Reddit, like the prevalence of misogynistic comments that can sometimes occur.
