Obama Takes Questions on Reddit, Briefly Crashes Site

Computerworld: On Wednesday, President Obama made a campaign stop at the Reddit online discussion site, where he answered questions for about a half hour. The discussion was part of the website’s popular “ask me anything” forum, but the President’s appearance attracted far more traffic than such conversations usually generate. In fact, Reddit received so much traffic that the website temporarily crashed while Obama was online.

Within fifteen hours after the discussion, the “I am Barack Obama, President of the United States — AMA” forum had generated more than 22,500 comments.
