According to a tweet posted this afternoon, GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving will be participating in a Reddit AMA session later on this week. If you are unfamiliar with what this means, AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything,” and participants can ask Irving any questions they may have. Over the years a variety of executives, entrepreneurs, athletes, and other famous people have participated in Reddit AMAs.
The format of a AMA is pretty straightforward. People can post any questions they have for Irving to answer, and he can pick and choose the questions he answers. Participants can also ask follow up questions and post comments. It should be a pretty good way to learn more about Irving and possibly GoDaddy. I would assume questions about an IPO would be off limits, but who knows. The name of the event is Ask Me Anything after all.
Irving’s AMA will be held on Thursday, April 24 at 9:30 AM PST (12:30 PM EST). I am not sure how long he will be participating, but if you want to learn more about Irving, GoDaddy, or even the business of domain names, be ready with some good questions. The url for the actual AMA thread will be available at the time of the AMA, but you can see the main Reddit AMA page here. I will update this with the actual url of the AMA when it begins.
