When I was researching the topic I stumbled on an interesting event which happened on Reddit.
Salman Khan was placing himself on a public forum to answer questions on reddit.com, something which a number of people who are in the public’s interest do. The thread titled “I am Salman Khan founder of Khan Academy-AMA” allowed people to ask Sal questions and receive a response from an account that is validated to be the person in question.

To keep this short I won’t go over all the questions and answers, but I’ll just focus on one particular Q & A. After a user inquired into Khan doing videos on quantum computing, another user made it clear that he would be interested in helping out Khan in that sector. That user turned out to be none other than, Michael Nielsen a very famous name in that field, and the author of many books on the topic. The invitation was instantly well-received from Khan and sparked much positive comments from other users who could see the conversation in front of their eyes.

This interesting event had a number of positive elements. One of which is the eagerness of many highly educated people to come on board to the ever expanding K.A.. It also showed Khan’s eagerness to help and grow the idea that began as one man in his own house uploading videos for his cousins!
