Whoa, people actually subscribed to /r/chugalug

From: Sean Brewer 
It's not a bad idea to have it around, especially given that the
Chattanooga subreddit is fairly active. It's up to you guys if you want to
use it or not. I don't mind modding.

If any of you guys have any ideas for the subreddit, let me know. Maybe a
bot that posts the digests from the mailing list automatically, cool
styling, etc.

=============================================================== From: Michael Scholten ------------------------------------------------------ So my question here is, would we want to say "I'm bob1234 on reddit"? I'm interested in seeing where it could go with reddit... -Michael

=============================================================== From: Matt Eslinger ------------------------------------------------------ Cool idea. A CLug subreddit. here's me! http://www.reddit.com/user/warsd4/

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ For the perennially clueless, what is reddit, and why do I need it? I followed one of the earlier links to a reddit page, and what I saw looked like a circa 1995 hand coded HTML page that was about as dull as white bread. Between email, facebook, message forums, and the rare foray into Google+, do I really need yet another social media outlet? Jeff.

=============================================================== From: Randy Yates ------------------------------------------------------ Jeff, you should give up all the rest and just use Reddit.

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ Two minutes on the home page and that's all I can take. Ugly, full of crap. Just don't get it.

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ If you think of Reddit as a modern USENET, it makes way more sense.

=============================================================== From: William Roush ------------------------------------------------------ It's like every other link aggregator, just because the latest flavor of the month after Digg went down. William Roush

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Reddit has been around almost as long as Digg (which is still totally a thing). Digg is just 6 months or so older. I was HUGE into Digg at one point, one of its top 20 submitters, back when they tracked such things. (Side note - thanks to my connections here in Chugalug, I got to actually meet Kevin Rose - I met him and his DiggNation crew at the airport and drove some of them downtown.) But to say that Reddit is the flavor of the month is very unfair. It was founded in June, 2005. 8+ years is a really, really long month. *- Chad W.

=============================================================== From: William Roush ------------------------------------------------------ Just kind of saying it's just another link aggregator (and being realistic, it only really took off in the past few years), and like any other link aggregator, it's best to go to the more popular ones for the content, not so much the UI, features, etc. So you suck up the bad to get to the content that's being posted. Not to mention, I don't dream of the days I'll be logging onto Reddit in 10 years. I'm sure Advance Publications will probably do something stupid by then (or hearing from the meta subs, the admins will do it all on their own). William Roush

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ Looked a lot like drinking from the firehose. I can't keep up with Slashdot, no way I have time for that.

=============================================================== From: John Aldrich ------------------------------------------------------ Quoting DaWorm : I'm pretty sure the corporate firewall won't let me get to Reddit. They don't allow us to get to Facebook, so I'm thinking they won't let us get to Reddit either.

I too have never gotten very far with Reddit. And I suggest that the people complaining about the email form factor are complaining that their railroad locomotives don't work very well on our sidewalks. I have yet to see a forum that lets me do as much with threading and filtering as all of the email clients for devices with full-sized keyboards that I've used since before my primary email address started containing an @ symbol. But, yeah, most phone email clients suck, which is why I use a different address for my phone and don't read mailing lists there. Dan

=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ If by "wit" you mean "brain-melting depravity" then sure.

=============================================================== From: Dan Lyke ------------------------------------------------------ So far as I can tell, Reddit's holding its own on the brain-melting depravity front... Dan

=============================================================== From: Rod ------------------------------------------------------ Ut has been suggested off list that there is enough talent on this list to write a proper chugalug phone app. Tho with 2 web interfaces is it needed?
