Global Reddit Meetup Day is June 25: Together We’re Better

It's been going on for seven straight years and it's all thanks to you. Global Reddit Meetup Day is about to start its eighth lap and we’re doing it up.

Reddit has always been the best, most interesting, funniest, and most enlightening community on the internet. From those who worked together to restore fear (and/or sanity), to spread happiness, to protect the internet, and even save a life or two, Reddit has always rallied around and behind some pretty amazing ideas.

It’s this very idea of a unified community that inspired this year’s Global Reddit Meetup Day tagline: Together we’re better.

This year, Global Reddit Meetup Day will take place on Saturday, June 25—and as the name promises, the day will bring hundreds and hundreds together in hundreds and hundreds of cities around the world. It’s yet another tradition brought to life by you, the Reddit community.

It’s a day around the planet for redditors to dust off their barbecues, horse masks, board games, and more to meet one another and commune over shared (...or not shared) interests. Check out some of the meetups from last year in the GRMD compilation video below!

As promised, Reddit HQ will bring out some new surprises this year—stay tuned for developments—but for now, save the date: June 25! Global Reddit Meetup Day is coming.

Humans make connections.

Sometimes these connections grow.
Sometimes they stay the same.
Sometimes they collapse.

Ask Me Anything: Volume One

The Reddit editorial team along with the r/IAmA Mods are proud to present Ask Me Anything: Volume One, a beautiful coffee table book featuring some of our favorite AMAs from r/IAmA, original portraits, and you can order it right now in digital or a beautiful (limited) coffee-table-edition hardcover.

For years, Reddit’s community has had the chance to speak one-on-one with individuals across politics, science, culture, entertainment, crime, fashion, and anonymous everyday folks to learn directly from the source what it feels like to be them. 

We’re excited to have created an almost 400-page volume, filled with some of the sites favorite AMAs from Louis C.K. to Bette Midler, Chris Rock to Martha Stewart. Tech moguls like Bill Gates are rubbing pages with the amazing Waffle House Grill Masters and Nazi Germany survivors. A nuclear missile operator gets as much ink as Ronda Rousey, Andrew WK, Spike Lee, or a person who survived being held hostage in Iraq. It’s the beauty of the Reddit on the printed page. 

Contained within these pages is a cross-section of what it looks like to be alive in this day and age -- and indeed, what makes us human. With illustrations by u/youngluck and an introduction from the aforementioned mods, Ask Me Anything: Volume One is the interview you’ve always wanted to read because it was conducted by you.

We printed only 10,000 copies, and some of the proceeds of this book are going to a charity of the mods choosing, so get it while the gettin’ is good.
