When asked about voat being a threat, and the repetition of the Digg migration, Reddit CEO said: "reddit had better technology than Digg. I don't think Voat has better technology than reddit." submitted by distortedlines to MeanwhileOnReddit

I think he's missing the point. The gripe with Digg was technology-related: people didn't like the redesign. The current Reddit drama is more of a cultural issue. People are leaving because of censorship and Voat is presenting itself as the free-speech alternative. So, just like the Digg migration, there is a site offering exactly what the disgruntled people want. I think Reddit should be concerned because it's not about technology, it's about content. As soon as a critical mass of the content creators move to a new site, everyone else will follow. That's the danger of building a business where your most valuable asset is created and maintained by volunteers. That said, I don't really want to see Voat become a Reddit killer. I'd rather Reddit stay Reddit and Voat stay Voat.

[ELI18] Whats the difference between matter, anti-matter and dark matter, and energy and dark energy submitted by MasterMale to science

an_instance 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago

Dark matter was proposed because the gravitational behavior of very massive objects like galaxy clusters did not match their observable mass. Basically you add up everything you can see in a galaxy cluster and you have an idea how massive it should be. However, this observable stuff behaves gravitationally as if it were much more massive than we observe it to be, so there is "missing mass" that is unaccounted for. Dark matter is a proposed solution to this discrepancy. It would account for about 73% of the total mass of the universe and is thought to comprise the large-scale structure of the universe, around which all the observable matter collects.

Dark energy was a solution to a different problem. Gravity is a universal attractive force between matter. The universe began with a big bang that introduced a massive amount of energy that caused the universe to expand in opposition to gravity. If gravity and the energy of the big bang were the only forces at play, you would expect the expansion of the universe to gradually slow, then reverse as gravity took over, much like you when throw a ball up in the air, and it slows under the force of gravity, reverses direction, and returns to your hand. However, observations indicate that the expansion of the universe is actually accelerating, which would suggest there is another force at work acting in opposition to gravity. This is dark energy. It's not just leftover inertia from the big bang but a force that is actively pushing against gravity. Dark energy accounts for 23% of the mass of the universe, so if you add that to dark matter, 96% of the universe is composed of stuff we can't directly observe, leaving 4% for everything that we can obseeve, like stars, planets, people, and goats.

Would you rather go blind or go deaf? submitted by Geophro to AskVoat

I love music and would miss it terribly, but I don't think I would want to give up the visual world. I hike a lot and that would be a lot more challenging, plus I wouldn't be able to see all the spectacular views. I also wouldn't be able to play Minecraft and I don't know if I could handle that.

What are some hobbies that are really cheap or free? submitted by EliteSt4lk3R to AskVoat

Hiking. It's cheap, you'll get to see some amazing stuff that most people don't get a chance to see, and it's good for you!
