Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, A Case of Identity


Ordinary people in relatable settings are at the heart of many great stories. Yet, it is incredibly hard to Google about the lives, experiences and characteristics of ordinary people. Inspired by this article, I have set out to help writers peek into the lives and events of normal folk. I do this by tapping into comments written by ordinary people on reddit.com - one of the largest online communities in the world, with more than 230 million users.


Paraphrasing my favorite author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Wisdom of reddit exists to help writers hover over a great online community and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results.
