Entrepreneurship Through Time [Reddit API]

This post is to explain my usage of the reddit API.

I plan on using the reddit API to collect data about the reddit community: r/Entrepreneur

My plan is to look at how the community has changed with time. I am very interested in the years: 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2015. The years around 2008 are interesting as interest in entrepreneurship increased because of the economy. 2015 also was a high year of interest for entrepreneurship.

How was this reddit community affected by the increase in interest? Were there more posts? Were post more often? Where the posts in those years receive more karma? These are some of the questions I want to answer and examine.

After collecting and analyzing the data I plan to publish the data to a peer-reviewed academic journal.
