Next month, tech-savvy Clevelanders can take a break from Internet trolling to see the man who made "redditing" an actual thing.

On Feb. 10, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian will stop by CWRU to talk about his book, Without Their Permission.

(If you're one of the few people who don't know what reddit is [do such people really exist?], reddit is a glorious social news site filled with information about current happenings and reader banter. Plus, there are plenty of pictures of cats.)

Besides chatting about reddit, Ohanian will also speak to a few Case graduate students who have developed an online restaurant ordering system to give them some pointers about making it big in the startup biz.

The event will be held on Feb. 10, 2014, between 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. It's free, but tickets must be reserved online.
