Quoting a price like this to an indie dev is even more insulting than Twitter suddenly slamming the door on third-party apps. And they don’t have the excuse of having just been acquired by a maniac.

It would be such a simple thing to restrict third-party apps to paying Reddit users, I have to assume it’s really about controlling the experience — and they'll shut down oldꓸredditꓸcom soon? I'm honestly curious whether it will impact their usage statistics.

Got off my call with Reddit just now about the API. Bad news unless I come up with 20 million dollars (not joking). Appreciate boosts.

Want to know when I post new content to my blog? It's a simple as registering for free to an RSS aggregator (Feedly, NewsBlur, Inoreader, …) and adding to your feeds (or if you want to subscribe to all my topics). We don't need newsletters, and we don't need Twitter; RSS still exists.
