    Most of these pertaining to two sided markets come under the heading of "Fake it til you make it", ie Reddit consisting mainly of the founders operating puppet accounts at first. PayPal being the buying side of the market is an interesting one though. I guess they then resold stuff rather than ending up with millions of beanie babies in their offices? Does anyone know the founders? Are their houses full of beanie babies?

    This is a good quick read. It includes some of the classic growth hacks that we've all heard about, but there were a few new ones for me as well.

    I think the About.me one is pretty clever, but it's also very annoying.

    I had no idea that Reddit was in fact playing with the stats in early stages, makes me think of all the Alexis talks, and whether he's bullshitting most of the time...
