What is an AMA?

AMA stands for Ask Me Anything, which is a thread of typed questions from Reddit users about the work of a particular individual or project, such as the Climate CoLab. Users will upvote and downvote questions and we’ll answer the most popular and intriguing ones live on the site. (Reddit is free to join and use.)  See this sample AMA, held with NASA’s Chief Technologist, Mason Peck.

We’re running this AMA to give you a more personalized and in-depth look into the Climate CoLab and our research. We want to better understand what our community thinks about our work and respond to questions and suggestions. We invite you to ask us, well, anything!
