Jeremy Edberg, the first paid employee at reddit, teaches us a lot about how to create a successful social site in a really good talk he gave at the RAMP conference. Watch it here at Scaling Reddit from 1 Million to 1 Billion–Pitfalls and Lessons.

Jeremy uses a virtue and sin approach. Examples of the mistakes made in scaling reddit are shared and it turns out they did a lot of good stuff too. Somewhat of a shocker is that Jeremy is now a Reliability Architect at Netflix, so we get a little Netflix perspective thrown in for free.

Some of the lessons that stood out most for me:

I recently got interested in this topic about software agents. But everything I've found where those studies and software examples which originate in the years from 1990 to 2000. After this timeperiod it feels like a abandoned branch of AI. Is it true that this field has nothing more to offer especially in the face of the growing neuroscientific effort and their results (like Spaun, etc)?
