We are a group of hepatitis C and harm reduction experts from organizations in Thunder Bay, Canada here to answer your questions! Ask us anything!

Hi Reddit! We are HepNet, a coalition of agencies and organizations from Thunder Bay, ON.

July 28th is recognized annually as World Hepatitis Day, an international event with the goals of raising awareness about viral hepatitis and influencing action. We are holding the AMA today to commemorate the event this year. The goals of this AMA are to raise awareness, reduce stigma, encourage testing, and provide education on Hepatitis C and associated risks, as well as to provide education on harm reduction.

There are currently 300 million people living with viral hepatitis who are unaware of their status. In Thunder Bay, approximately 1 in 50 people are living with Hepatitis C, and many are diagnosed. These local rates are much higher than the provincial average. As Hep C often has, mild or no symptoms at all, the only way to know for sure is to get tested. Understanding risk and practicing harm reduction have been proven to reduce the risk of transmission.

We are holding this AMA as a fun and exciting way to engage with the public and answer any questions you might have!

I made a free alternative to Photoshop, that is used by 3 millions of people. Ask me Anything!

My name is Ivan Kutskir, I am 28 y.o. and live in Prague, the Czech Republic. I am the author of www.Photopea.com , an advanced image editor, that works in a web browser. There were about 3 million visitors in October.

I already did the AMA here seven months ago with an amazing response! I would like to let you know, what happened since then, and how much has Reddit helped me 🙂

  • the number of users doubled
  • my income quadrupled (I replaced AdSense with other ad providers)
  • I added the support for new RAW formats, Actions, Slices, Templates and many other features
  • Photopea is fully translated into 38 languages (by users)
  • I got in touch (videocalls) with Corel, Adobe, Google and many other tech companies (mostly from the Silicon Valley)
  • I gave a talk about Photopea at the Web2Day conference in France

I still work on Photopea alone from the same apartment in Prague, on the same $500 laptop 🙂 I was never so excited about the progress of Photopea. Ask me Anything! 🙂

You can follow Photopea on Facebook or Twitter 🙂 Proof: I put a link to this AMA here!

Iam the writer of an upcoming scifi graphic novel called BLUEFALL. AMA!

My bio:

I wrote a graphic novel and commissioned an awesome Indonesian artist, Vincentius Matthew, to create concept art for the project, then I went and hired a talented recent graduate of the Kubert School, Dillon Snook, to illustrate the project.

The graphic novel comes out in June!

Since answering questions over on r/worldbuilding was so fun, I wanted to give others a chance to check out the images/story and ask whatever comes to mind.

The story: When the creator of the powerful virtual Universe, “Circus” is murdered, LAPD detective JULIAN AMBROSE delves into the virtual world to find the killer and uncover the global financial conspiracy behind his death.

EDIT: The concept artist's name is Vincentius Matthew!

I am Michio Kaku, physicist, futurist and author of THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY-AMA!!

I'm a physicist and my primary vocation is doing theoretical physics, on paper, by hand. I also have a passion for explaining science, so I've written a number of popular science books-about hyperspace, the physics of the impossible, the future of the mind, and more. My latest (out now in paperback) is about The Future of Humanity: on Earth, across space, throughout time, all the way to our destiny among the stars. Read more about The Future of Humanity here: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/555722/the-future-of-humanity-by-michio-kaku/9780525434542/ Proof: https://twitter.com/michiokaku/status/1120404221369696256 Fire away! I'm ready for your best!

I'll be signing off now. If you have more questions or I wasn't able to get to yours, I'll be doing a Facebook Live on Tuesday, April 30th. Hope to see some of you there. Thanks for your comments and curiosities!

7 years ago I decided to walk every block in NYC. I’ve now covered more than 9,000 miles on foot, with a few hundred left to go. AMA! via /r/IAmA


7 years ago I decided to walk every block in NYC. I’ve now covered more than 9,000 miles on foot, with a few hundred left to go. AMA!

My name is Matt Green. About a decade ago I quit my civil engineering job and spent 5 months walking 3,100 miles across the United States, from Rockaway Beach, NYC, to Rockaway Beach, Oregon. After returning to the East Coast, I drifted around and worked odd jobs for a while before deciding to take on another walking project, this time focused on one place: walking every block of every street in the 5 boroughs of NYC, plus parks, cemeteries, beaches, bridges, and other outdoor public(ish) spaces.

I don't have a particular goal or focus when I'm walking. I just try to pay attention to whatever's around me. It's amazing how much there is to see everywhere, whether you're in the middle of North Dakota, Staten Island, or Times Square. It just takes a long time to open your eyes to it all. I'm still working on opening mine. I meet a lot of people, take a lot of photos, and do a lot of research afterward to figure out the stories behind the things I encountered. I document the small wonders (and non-wonders) that I see and learn about on my website, imjustwalkin.com.

Recently I was the subject of the documentary The World Before Your Feet, which you can watch here.

EDIT (4:26pm ET): Thanks everyone for all the great questions and generous offers. I need to wind this down, but I’ll try to take a last look over your questions tonight/tomorrow and answer a few more then. If you want to know more, check out the documentary and my snoozefest of a blog — or, better yet, go for a walk yourself!
