I am sending out invites to everyone I can get contact info on, just sent one to Neil DeGrasse Tyson, but his site says his schedule is "very limited until 2014". I imagine it would be he's an excellent speaker and an obviously brilliant man.

That would be awesome!

I just nominated him for president in this thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Also Danny Carey, MJK or Tom Morello.

I also wouldn't mind seeing Charlie Sheen answer questions

You can bet we'll get everyone we can, the smart ones will see the golden opportunity to engage with their absolute target demographic/market in a meaningful way (rather than having banner ads on the site *Which work wonders' I must say) and will likely continue to participate long after the spotlight of the AMA has faded.

Either way, I see this as a very, very cool addition to ATS for our members and visitors.

We've been getting a pretty positive response to some of our queries... I hope to have an announcement on the first round of AMAs by next week. Keep an eye out for an admin PM in your inbox.

Oh, nice! I have to ask, for the sake of the guests, though, if this sort of thread will be part of the main searches. Depending on who comes in to share with us, I could see privacy being a potential concern.

Sounds like fun. I just hope it doesn't snow ball into madness and rudeness. I wonder if the guest lecturer (for lack of a better word) will be able to get to all the questions. Perhaps the answers could be sparsed out over a few days. I've never participated in an AMA and don't know what to expect.

It does sound like it could be fun though.

The guest will answer as many questions as they can over a 48 hour period, that makes it manageable for everyone and gives the guest a decent shot at answering everyone's questions.

You can see what a Reddit.com AMA looks like here: www.reddit.com...

We will be strictly enforcing our manners and civility code during these events and anyone who violates the civility mandate will be post banned instantly.

Hopefully we won't have issues, it's easy to disagree with or challenge someone in a polite and civil manner. These guests are giving us the most precious resource anyone has, their time. As I said in the OP of this thread, respect for the guest is assumed by virtue of their participation in the thread.

@"Ladygreeneyes": Privacy isn't an issue, the point behind someone doing an AMA is the opportunity to get the word out regarding their latest projects to a very targeted audience. Essentially it's an opportunity to promote yourself and your work, that's the benefit for the person answering the questions...

Sounds like a great deal, all around! Do we get any hints of who might be coming in to share?

Be on the lookout next week for the announcement PM that will divulge who the first AMA will be. Later in the week we should have another announcement PM with the names and scheduled dates for the next four or five. Locking in dates is not as easy as one might think it would be since most of these folks are busy with their existing projects, books, etc...

In any case, next week will reveal what we've managed to get set up for the ATS AMAs.

Don't know if its too late for suggestions but, my top two pics would be:

G Edward Griffin author or The Creature from Jekyll Island.

and

Paul LaViolette author of Secrets of Anti-gravity Propulsion.

I have mixed feelings about this suggestion . . .

However, I think it MIGHT BE WISE--GIVEN TIME CONSTRAINTS--for 2-3 Super-Mods or some such

to each independently prioritize the more significant to less significant questions--in real time--and the software to then rank, list the questions in that prioritized order.

There are a range of knowledge, writing skills, thinking skills, informed understanding etc. hereon. And even the brightest of us can sometimes ask some really chaff questions. I'd sure like to see the better questions put up as much first as practical. Not precisely certain how best to do that.

If there were 3 Super-mods doing it--with one of them or all 3 of them from different perspectives--I think that would help insure the better questions floated to the top as quickly as workable.

Of course, if the questions were coming in not much faster than they were being answered, then it would not be very doable. If they were coming in 25 questions a minute, it might be essential to do it.

imho
