CEO of Reddit Resigns

Ellen Pao has stepped down from her position at Reddit after a particularly tumultuous month for the site (aka the deletion of a subreddit where you can hate on fat people and the firing of the AMA coordinator w/o any warning). There was a petition with over 200 thousand signatures demanding her resignation, but Pao says that's not what made her step down.

"So why am I leaving? Ultimately, the board asked me to demonstrate higher user growth in the next six months than I believe I can deliver while maintaining reddit’s core principles."

Co-Founder Steve Huffman will take over her role. Pao will stick around in an advisory capacity but otherwise didn't provide details on her future from here.
