Reddit’s grassroots political efforts ready for their close-up
You know what’s cool? When friggin’ Reddit fights for what it believes in. We posted about this phenomenon a month ago when it was tentatively called RPAC, and from there, they’ve kept it up. The Open Source Democracy Foundation (a 501(c)(4), not a PAC) is ready for its close-up, and their first order of business is net neutrality. ”Regardless of peoples’ ideologies and political persuasions,” says the organization’s founder, Eddie Geller, “we find it hard to believe anyone wants the Internet to be less free or less open.” With the the SavetheInternet.com Coalition, they’re working on a letter-writing campaign to the FCC. But lest you think they’ve outgrown their roots, they’re still on Reddit, collectively plotting their next steps. Keep an eye on these guys. source

Spiffy: Reddit users build their own political action committee
So, to anyone who thinks Reddit is just a bunch of silly videos and a meme machine, here’s probably the most interesting use of the site so far. A Reddit political action committee. Their issues? Net neutrality, campaign finance reform, and a general emphasis on progress before profit. This is why Reddit is different. We don’t see anyone making a DiggPAC. source
