The IAmA (as in I am a _____, Ask Me Anything) Community is a place on Reddit where a new kind of crowdsourced interview can happen, which is an Ask Me Anything. There are two levels: IAmAs, scheduled and promoted generally supporting celebrities and notables and AMAs, a general forum for “everyone else.”  

While reddit IAmAs are conducted on the asynchronous reddit message boards, it’s treated more like chat. That said, the interviewee should be willing to commit to at least a couple hours through to all day.  The interviewee can go through and reply to the questions they find interesting, and easily see those questions the internet is dying to have the answer too.

Because the internet is asking the questions, they're going to be a mix of serious and lighthearted, and you'll find yourself sharing all kinds of things you won't find in a normal interview.  Embrace the cult of personality. This isn’t a press conference. Reddit doesn’t respond very well to shameless self-promotion. As a result, the topic of the Reddit AMA/IAmA should be as general as possible.
