    @Nicolas Maybe that is the big difference between SV and Europe, we should be doing more drugs

    @Klaas Coming from a guy in the Netherlands - not sure if you can use that as an excuse

    Kind of weird to think of Reddit as a public traded entity but looking forward to it. If the Reddit community doesn't weigh in and pump it I will be kind of sad. @Klaas @Nicolas any predictions?

    @Sam They will ruin what is left over from the good years and a new Reddit will appear

    @Klaas I agree that Reddit doesn't seem like a company that will do well when influenced by 60+ yo fund managers. Can actually see this leading to the emergence of a DAO-governed competitor

    @Nicolas I am not sold on DAO yet, we often see people get back to a centralised entity to deal with a lot of the hassle and DAO atm attracts primarily the extremes. Hopefully this will change of course. I am hoping for a more classic forum type of social network, reddit is getting more and more focused on short form and disposable content. Boy do I miss the days of reading forums and feeling actually part of a community
