Project Cleans Up Reddit AMA’s With An Easier-To-Read Format
Software developer makes free-for-all interviews even better.
Reddit’s Ask Me Anything (AMA) section of the website has attracted some pretty impressive people over time. While you can find famous musicians, scientists, actors, and sportspeople offering themselves up, the format of the interviews leaves something to be desired. Enter Dan Drabik, a New York-based software developer who decided to clean things up and post everything to Interviewly.
The project was started out of love, and Drabik describes his inspiration as such: “Reddit is great, but the format isn’t conducive to interviews (so AMA’s end up a bit ugly and hard to follow). I’ve cleaned them up a bit, added photos, ordered the questions chronologically, and broken them into categories.”
Unlike the original AMA, you don’t have to constantly navigate your way around user’s comments and stitch together the interview piece by piece. While some might claim that’s part of the appeal, it’s also nice to have everything in one place. If you already love AMAs. we’re sure you’ll love Interviewly as well.
So far, Drabik has only focused on the big names like Barack Obama, Bill Murray, South Korea’s PSY, and Dave Grohl, but with enough interest, there’s a good chance lesser-known names will also make it onto the site as well.
