Reddit Cofounder Alexis Ohanian’s Upcoming Novel Makes Grim Predictions

27 Aug

So, you like to play SSB?

Okay, so I just heard it, and now you have to. Give it a second to sink in once you hear it, or read it, or whatever the hell you do with it.

Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian is about to release his new book, Without Their Permission. It gives us a less-than-enticing look at what may come in our near future. It’s a book about freedom, privacy, and all those things you humans are squabbling about nowadays. Take a look at this excerpt from the audiobook, or, if you’re feeling learned, the written version can be found here. It’s the original Reddit post he promoted to get the word out about this.

What, you want to  know what I think about it? Well, I’ll tell you: I think it doesn’t matter what I think of it, it matters what you think of it. It’s up to you to decide if the book’s data is valuable. It’s up to you to decide whether you’ll buy it or not to hear/read what Ohanian has to say. Will I buy it? For kicks, probably. I really want to get a look at the lead-in to the excerpt.

Okay, so there, I did a “news” story for once. And yeah, I kind of liked it, but I’ll only do more of those if you guys want ’em. Otherwise…

Hello, young muskrats! It’s the Christmas Season, and I figured I’d let you all, who aren’t even probably listening, know that on December 12, 2012, on the twelfth second of the twelfth minute of the twelfth hour, I announced the completion of my upcoming novel, Ledge. I’d give you all another taste, but frankly I can’ decide which chapter to show. The second one is definitely something to read straight from the book. Until I decide, I guess I’ll just say The Hobbit was awesome and that because I saw it on premiere night I got to witness the opening scene of Star Trek Into Darkness, which was also awesome. Also, what happened in Connecticut really sucks. To the families of those who died, don’t worry, I’m sure something good will come your way even after this tragedy has occurred. God bless you. Lastly, Happy Holidays everyone. You spin those dreidels.

Sincerely,

D.
