Reddit, Social News Frontrunner, Is Down To One Developer

Two out of the three remaining Reddit programmers quietly left the social news community last week, Mike Schiraldi going to Google and David King going to Hipmunk where he joins Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. This means that the over one billion page view a month site is currently running with only one developer (Neil Williams, hired in November) and two sysadmins until it can hire new engineering staff.

One would expect that a website so successful and loved by nerds will have no problem to find developers. But apparently that’s not the case.
