Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of the social news website reddit and vocal opponent of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), will provide the opening keynote address at Innovate / Activate 2.0, an international conference connecting activism and intellectual property, set to take place at UC Berkeley on April 20-21, 2012.
As "one of the more passionate and audacious young entrepreneurs in tech," Alexis has helped lead the charge to keep the Internet open in face of overreaching IP legislation introduced in the U.S. Congress over the past year.
In addition to his role with reddit, Alexis founded Breadpig, an uncorporation that creates and sells geeky things and contributes their profits to good causes. He also helped launch the travel search company hipmunk, serves as the Ambassador to the East for Y Combinator, and is an angel investor at Das Kapital Capital.
