Nntpit: Minimalist Reddit-to-NNTP gateway

Source: Hacker News

Article note: I frequently make the observation that the BBS -> Usenet -> Forum -> Digg -> Reddit continuum has been essentially the same thing reinvented over and over with a little less user control and a little more centralization and coercion. Looking at reddit-via-newsreader makes it very clear just how good the "the user and their client are in control of presentation, protocols move content between them" model was, and how thoroughly we've lost it.
