In many ways, products are a reflection of their founders, and I consider myself a geek. But aside from that, Imgur just organically evolved into the epicenter of geek culture.
Geek culture is all about being super passionate about your interests and not afraid to express them, even if your interests are unpopular.
I think it's interesting to know that being a geek isn't the negative thing that it used to be.
For millennials, being a geek is a positive thing, and we see people proudly self-identifying themselves as geeks.
It's gotten more open and easy to create a business on the Internet. That's a really awesome thing for entrepreneurs and for the world.
On Imgur, introverts can be extroverts. They don't have to worry about curating their own brand and are able to express themselves more authentically. They can go on Imgur and be themselves.
If SOPA were to pass, Imgur would not be able to exist. We survive on user-generated content. It would be impossible for us to police the amount of traffic we get for what is or isn't copyrighted material. It's just not possible.
I'm against the SOPA act, and Imgur, as a company, is against it.
