Time travel doesn’t exist yet; Reddit 3016.com may be the next-best thing.
The site is an art project of sorts created by Blair Erickson, Gizmodo reports, and imagines what the “Frontpage Of The Internet” might look like 1,000 years in the future. Viral headlines from the distant beyond include “Everyone’s favorite Pocket Whale is back for a new season on Holoflix!” and “More and more species offspring living as openly Takei.” Some of the stories click through to the likes of Huffington Planet, MindTube and hologur, all spoofs of current sites.
Gizmodo asked Erickson about the process of putting the site together:
“While some communities have opted to remove the link, many have approved its placement,” Reddit (the real version) said in a statement to TIME. “We have over 10k active subreddits and just like any large group, opinions and needs can vary. Reddit, Inc. is impressed with the creativity and thought behind Reddit3016 and looks forward to the continued conversation around its content.”
