Connecticut GM on Reddit Tomorrow

Brother Tom Accousti in Connecticut informs me that their MWGM Simon LaPlace is going to do an AMA ("Ask Me Anything") interview on Reddit, Friday June 7th, from 3 to 6 pm. 

Reddit has a young demographic, but there is a pretty active Freemasonry sub-group that's been growing steadily for the last year or so. Tom says it reminds him of the older Usenet groups, although without nearly as many trolls and conspiracy nuts.

According to Tom, "This started out because I keep telling people about how cool Masonry is up here in Connecticut, and how our GL is pretty progressive about electronic media. Someone asked me if our GM would do an AMA, and next thing you know we're setting it up."

The link to where they can find him is:

  1. And of course if anyone is interested in the Freemasonry group itself, they are free to drop in anytime.

    We have over 2,000 subscribers, although like any group, probably only 100 or so are really active. But it's a growing venue, and a great place for younger (i.e., newer) Masons to hang out, ask questions, and argue about which way to wear your new ring.

  4. Well, that AMA went pretty well. It was nice to see that each time a Freemason does one there are fewer questions about conspiracies and aliens.

    Chris, thanks for posting; it was nice to see so many Masons jumping in to help answer questions.


    So, Chris - when are we going to have you on?

ATTENTION!
Kindly sign your comment posts. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers, as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
