Digital Magazine The Redditor Compiles Popular Reddits For Traditional Magazine-Like Consumption

New Role for Print Editors in the Digital Age?

I’ve seen things come full circle. Just as esteemed bastions of the print world like the NYT, The Boston Globe, and The Atlantic remake themselves into digitally focused media organizations, along comes The Redditor which distills popular sub-reddits/threads into creepily magazine-like PDF’s – ostensibly for offline / print consumption.

I’ve seen online collections turned into print pieces before. Distro from Engadget puts together a monthly PDF of their content. What’s really cool about The Redditor however is that most of what is produced on Reddit comes from individual redditors – not tech industry journalists with questionable objectivity.
