Reddit knows how to pack its “IAmA” message board. Just today, the site’s half hour Q&A slots included minor celebrities like Adam Duritz, lead singer of the Counting Crows, Jason Healy, the creator of Blu e-cigarettes, and Alan Rusbridger, editor of The Guardian. Oh, and performance artist Marina Abramović, who’s been in the public eye lately for some dismal performance with Jay-Z, and for a Kickstarter campaign to fund her performance art cult. So, what happened during Abramović’s 12:30 PM EST slot?
As of this writing, 500 comments were left, and the “AbramovicInstitute” moniker had answered hundreds of them. We’ve been paying attention to the trolls and fans, and come up with a shortlist of the best and worst comment threads. Bravo.
