Barack Obama Does an AMA on Reddit

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 9:30 AM

The president of the United States did what appears to have been a surprise AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit today, following in the illustrious footsteps of such luminaries as the Mars Curiosity Rover team, Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings, Woody Harrelson, and someone who is currently passing a kidney stone.

Truth be told, it didn't seem like anything more than simple politicking. He didn't stray far from his usual platforms and didn't answer anything too weird, as Reddit can be known for.

He did make a point of answering a question about Internet freedom:

Internet freedom is something I know you all care passionately about; I do too. We will fight hard to make sure that the Internet remains the open forum for everybody—from those who are expressing an idea to those to want to start a business. And although there will be occasional disagreements on the details of various legislative proposals, I won't stray from that principle—and it will be reflected in the platform.
