Ohanian, 33, is the co-founder of Reddit, and currently works as the company’s executive chairman. He and Williams have yet to announce when exactly they’ll be tying the knot for good.

Ohanian was born in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated from the University of Virginia in 2005 with degrees in commerce and history. He founded reddit.com with co-founder, Steve Huffman, not long after graduating.

In January, after winning her first match at the 2017 Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia, Williams’ opened up about her engagement to Ohanian. When asked if she feels different now that she’s officially engaged, the tennis ace responded, “It feels good.” She then added on: “I really haven’t thought about it too much, because I wasn’t even really gonna think about it until after the tournament,” she explained. “So, I just keep saying, ‘February, I’ll start looking at the bigger picture of my life.’ But right now, I’m just so focused that this is all I can think about.”

POLITICAL TENNIS
.
.
In June 2005, in Medford, Massachusetts, Reddit was founded by Steve Huffman, and Alexis Ohanian!… both, 22-year-old graduates of the University of Virginia! The team, expanded to include Christopher Slowe, in November of 2005! Between November 2005 and January 2006, Reddit merged with AARON SWARTZ’s company, Infogami!… and then, Swartz became an equal owner of the resulting parent company, “Not A Bug”!
.
Aaron Hillel Swartz… as you may recall!… was an American computer programmer, entrepreneur, writer, political organizer, and Internet Hacktivist! He was involved in the development of the web feed format RSS, the Markdown publishing format, the Creative Commons organization, and the website framework, “web.py”!
.
Swartz’s work also focused on civic awareness, and activism! He helped launch the “Progressive Change Campaign Committee” in 2009, to learn more about effective “online activism”! In 2010, he became a RESEARCH FELLOW at Harvard University’s Safra Research Lab, SPECIALIZING IN INSTITUTIONAL CORRUPTION… which was directed by Lawrence Lessig! (In otherwords, he was ACTIVELY PURSUING I-N-T-E-R-N-E-T C-O-R-R-U-P-T-I-O-N!) And!… he founded the online group, Demand Progress!… known for its campaign against the Stop Online Piracy Act!
.
On January 6, 2011, Swartz was arrested by MIT police on state breaking-and-entering charges, after connecting a computer to the MIT network, in an unmarked and unlocked closet, and setting it to download academic journal articles systematically, from JSTOR (the data of which, he could have EASILY SECURED from JSTOR DIRECTLY, without all the fuss!)!… using a guest user account I-S-S-U-E-D T-O H-I-M, by MIT! U.S. Federal Prosecutors later charged him with two counts of wire fraud, and eleven violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act!… carrying, a cumulative maximum penalty of one million dollars in fines, and, 35 years in prison! Other penalties included asset forfeiture, restitution, and supervised release!
.
However!… and shortly thereafter!… it was PROFFERED that Aaron Swartz had committed suicide, while under Federal indictment for his “alleged” “computer crimes”! However!… and in contrast to the charges and penalties facing him!… Swartz DECLINED a plea bargain!… under which, he would have served a mere S-I-X M-O-N-T-H-S in a Federal prison! And then… just TWO DAYS after the prosecution rejected a counter-offer by Swartz (the details of which, have yet to be made publicly known!), Swartz, was… M-Y-S-T-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y!… found dead, in his Brooklyn apartment! Whereat… it was claimed!… he had h-u-n-g himself!
.
In June 2013, Swartz was inducted… posthumously!… into the Internet Hall of Fame!
.
In a January 13, 2013 Chronicle(dot)su Report, by Kilgoar… and afterupon questioning Julian Assange about Assange’s view of the death of Aaron Swartz (Assange… at the time!… sick from months of exile in the Ecuadorean Embassy!)!… Julian is recorded as stating:… “I am not convinced that Aaron Swartz was such a coward that he committed suicide due to fear of prison. Read his words!… and decide for yourself; but I believe Swartz was M-U-R-D-E-R-E-D by a team of COPYRIGHT ASSASSINS!… who made it all look like a simple suicide! Watch what you say!… or you may end up like Aaron Swartz!”
.
To sum up… and to revisit Kevin Bacon’s “Six Degrees of Separation”!… there is a yet to be revealed tale (or two!) about the “passing” of Aaron Swartz!… and, a yet to be revealed tale about what Alexis Ohanian knew– and knows!– about Aaron’s death! Indeed!… there are– I believe!– M-A-N-Y U-N-S-P-O-K-E-N T-R-U-T-H-S, that will shed light, on a YET TO BE LIT DARK AREA of the history of the Internet!… and, Aaron Swartz’s role, in that history!
.
The U.S. Federal Government D-I-D N-O-T H-A-V-E a “W-I-N-A-B-L-E C-A-S-E” against Aaron Swartz!… or Federal Prosecutors wouldn’t have offered up a mere S-I-X M-O-N-T-H-S behind a Federal prison!… and Aaron– and, his team!– K-N-E-W T-H-I-S! Further!… and just as important!… JSTOR (the not-for-profit group that was the “target” of Aaron Swartz’s YET TO BE REVEALED GAMEPLAN!), W-A-S N-O-T A-N-X-I-O-U-S to lay charges against Swartz! And so… coupled with the “awkward prosecution” against Swartz by the Federal Government!… the prospect of the Federal Government “winning the day” against Aaron Swartz, was a N-I-G-H I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-I-L-E task! What– EXACTLY!– Aaron Swartz was planning to do with the data from this not-for-profit organization (if anything!)!… and, what– EXACTLY!– Aaron’s Strategic and Tactical advocacy and politics were, in his “rendezvous” with/ at MIT (e.g., “staging” a courtroom battle!)!… will require DEEPER INVESTIGATION, than that offered up, todate! Nonetheless!… I-T I-S C-L-E-A-R, that Swartz (and given the “case” against him!) W-A-S N-O-T O-V-E-R-W-H-E-L-M-E-D by the “prosecution” of his “criminal act”!… and, that his “Strategic and Tactical gameplan” had caught the attention of “nefarious IT interests (at least, given the remarks made by Julian Assange!… and others!)”, who– I suggest!– weren’t about to allow Aaron Swartz to execute his “hidden gameplan”, through an American Court of law!
.
How Serena Williams, though… and maybe, the Williams sisters!… might factor in to a future revelation (or two!) about the life and times of Aaron Swartz, is– so far!– unclear!
.
Please!… no emails!

Apparently no one bothered to warn Serena about the psychology of the transitional relationship.

She was passionately kissing Drake in public around September, then mid-October she clung to this “Will Wheaton Wannabe” with “Love at first sight”. Every emotion she had for Drake but couldn’t get reciprocated, she just poured into the next boyfriend – who could have been anyone.

“Her friends and family unfortunately aren’t as trusting of Drake and worry he will just break her heart.” – TMZ
