It's a scary world out there. It takes courage to share anything intimate with the online world these days and even more to offer yourself up to a huge audience saying "ask me anything." This past week three IAMA posts received so many points & comments that they are in our top ten of all time: Lucidending, Ken Jennings, Congressman Garamendi, and one from a 4-year old, which also received thousands of comments. The IAMA reddit, an organic creation of the reddit community, has seen a huge growth over the past few months (see graphs), outpacing even reddit's incredible growth. What makes this format so compelling?
That Ken Jennings interview really was a supersized dose of awesome.
