Do you see the value in AMAs?
Otherwise known as "Ask Me Anything"s. For those unfamiliar, experts or other prominent individuals are invited on board for a period of time, to answer any questions you may have. If you do see the value, who would you like to be able to speak to?

I think Steven has a good point about live Q&A sessions at the end of a panel discussion or presentation. However, I would argue that AMA's online are very successful and even celebrated. Everyone from celebrities to presidential candidates and others have done them on the online community Reddit.
I think if the person is presenting a unique perspective or is someone that has lots of following it can be a very interesting thing to participate in either actively or passively.
I really enjoyed being part of the SavvySME AMA's the last time they happened. I also enjoyed participating in the AMAs of others.
