The power of the Reddit AMA: Forbes on the "interview revolution that has everyone talking." "Comedian Louis CK took a chance on a Reddit AMA by offering Redditors the chance to purchase his Live at Beacon Theater performance for $5 through his website. The result: over $1 million in sales in the first 10 days and a new distribution method. (previously) ... One New York Times bestselling author I spoke to saw their Amazon rank jump from 800 to 400 and stick, meaning a spike in hundreds and possibly thousands of books a day for more than a week." Just today, Kevin Smith and Steve Albini stopped by to chat with Redditors; other celebs who have done AMAs include Bob Odenkirk, Ken Jennings and Molly Ringwald. But it's not all about celebrities -- ordinary people with interesting stories do AMAs as well, including a former "Daily Show" intern and a couple who met through a Craig's List missed connections ad.
