Last night, Stephen Colbert's guest on The Colbert Report was reddit co-founder and open internet advocate Alexis Ohanian. Ohanian is promoting his new book, Without Their Permission, where he explores "the future of the internet for fun, profit, and the good of humankind."

What Colbert refers to as "cultural socialism" is actually the democratization of the internet, and more importantly, ideas - according to Ohanian. Check out the two discuss reddit, crowdfunding, and the free internet below. Also, bonus points to Colbert for bringing giant upvotes and downvotes to the party:
