Top Reddit IAmA's http://www.topiama.com The latest IAmA's collected from Reddit AuthorI am INFJoe, an artist, creator of INFJoe Cartoons, and author of Text, Don’t Call. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6303/i-am-infjoe-an-artist-creator-of-infjoe-cartoons We are Solar Team Twente, a group of 19 students who took a break of a little over a year from our studies in order to build the world’s most efficient solar car. Also, here we are with our solar car and bonus points for finding our mascot in the 360 view of our car and race team.

Our car will be partaking in the biennial World Solar Challenge in Australia, which will be held again this year in October (8-15 October for those wondering). There are multiple classes and we’ll be competing in the Challenger Class, which we like to call the F1 of solar car racing. This basically means that we built a single seat efficiency masterpiece built according to regulations set by the organization.

The team consists of a management team, communications team and technical team and basically functions like a small business, except we don’t get paid ;). We are also proud of the fact that we do almost everything ourselves; from designing, building and testing the solar car to securing all funds and in kind sponsoring and even our own management and public relations. As you would expect we have a great variety of study backgrounds, but let’s not give away everything just yet!

Of course, this wouldn’t be a proper AMA introduction without proof. The image is a little bit outdated (oops sorry), but the guy on the right is clearly so ugly that he can only be me. The two people in the image are also your hosts for this AMA. I, Luc, am one of the aerodynamicists of the team, while Gearte Nynke (good luck pronouncing that) is our communications manager. You can ask us anything you want. Questions could be about the car or other technical aspects, but also about our motivations to join the project or any other aspect of the project you can think off. Don’t be shy, Ask Us Anything!

Director / CrewHello Reddit! I am Andre Dupuis, co-creator, director, and cinematographer of the travel shows Departures and Descending. Ask me anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/6301/hello-reddit-i-am-andre-dupuis-cocreator-director Hello Reddit! I am Andre Dupuis, co-creator, director, and cinematographer of the travel shows Departures and Descending. I just finished my latest 6-part series Over the Horizon (My Pacific Quest) now airing on National Geographic and Outside TV. I trained for several years, along with host and adventurer Ellis Emmett, in order to learn how to sail a 56' yacht offshore into the Pacific Ocean. Our mission was to document our adventure exploring some of the most remote islands on Earth. This has been a passion project four years in the making. Ask me anything!

UPDATE: THANK YOU Thanks everyone for the amazing questions and most of all for the incredible support over the years. This was lots of fun! I hope you all get a chance to see Over the Horizon / My Pacific Quest soon. Now get out there and explore this amazing world of ours! -Andre

Actor / Entertainer - LiveI just interviewed 16 of the world's greatest interviewers. Ask me anything. http://www.topiama.com/r/6294/i-just-interviewed-16-of-the-worlds-greatest After my brothers girlfriends bus got hung up while trying to find Schenectady and presumably needed to be towed to get free, I realized just about everyone who's ridden Greyhound has had a shit experience on Greyhound. I'd love to shed some light to anyone who's curious about some behind the scenes stuff or what being a motorcoach operator for the nations largest carrier is like.

AthleteI am Olympic Gold Medalist swimmer involved in the Ryan Lochte Rio gas station scandal. Ask me anything http://www.topiama.com/r/6300/i-am-olympic-gold-medalist-swimmer-involved-in I came to America at 22 with nothing - lived in the back of my van - and pitched my way into HSN with zero experience. Since then, I’ve sold more than a billion in products, had my own show on Discovery Channel, and started a successful production company.

Now, I’ve written a book that teaches others how they can learn to pitch, so you can take control of your life and find success like I did.

Ask me anything about:

*my life’s journey *working with Billy Mays *what really happens behind the scenes of infomercials *having my own TV show *running a production company *Anything pitching! Like how mastering the skill of the pitch can change your life. *Anything at all! This is an AMA!

Buy my book here: https://www.amazon.com/You-Get-What-Pitch-Situation/dp/073822006X/ref=sr_1_1

EDIT: Thanks so much for all your questions! I've gotta run to a shoot, but I'll get back on later to answer some more. You guys rock.
