- And... a clone? Sure!
I was thinking it'd be fun to do a Reddit clone, and experiment with different voting systems. Point is, there are quite a few of them, so how am I going to get users? Answer: I don't need users!
I took this and this, and in a few hours(mostly spent updating the work of Lau), I had an autonomous Reddit clone running of the Twitter API, and I believe it to be possible to create a complete social network that runs without any user input.
