Reddit a Thousand Years into the Future

Reddit an open forum utility with a place to discuss everything on every subject. If you can think of it, there's a subreddit (an online forum) for it. It's a central hub for the latest news of the world.

Blair Erickson, a redditor, spent 4 years building a hilarious parody of reddit that imagines what the site would look like a thousand years into the future. It's called Reddit 3016. It's a non-stop parade of jokes, both about futurism and the tendencies of reddit.

Everything, including the ads, is part of the humor. For example, there's a sidebar promo for the latest Transformers movie, Dark of the Crack. Its tagline is "This time, one of them has a Jamaican accent." Popular subreddits in 2016 are updated to 3016 with discussion boards called Artificial Pro Life Tips and ExplainItLikeImAFireMite.

Gizmodo talked to Erickson about the project:

To dream up all those stories, videos, and images, Erickson combined futuristic technology with what he sees as universal themes around human conversation. “If you read graffiti in Roman bath houses you see human beings make... the same silly things even thousands of years in the past. Who’s sleeping with who. What kind of foreigners disturb their xenophobic feelings. Who’s a badass. What they like, what they hate. Who is a liar in politics, etc. So I wanted to play it out in a fun futuristic way.”

You should go to Reddit 3016 right now and go waste some time like, just like you do on the older reddit.
