It is simply beautiful when social media actually works
And in this case, I don't mean these thingys where you would have some problem and a trillion people answer and help you solve it, but the direct connection between celebs/experts and an audience. On Quora, an often underestimated question-answer-service, someone asks "what it is like to have your film flop at the box office". And the screenwriter for "Conan the Barbarian 3D" actually answers, with a beautiful, long, insightful and honest response, inspiring other professionals like the producer of Mulholland Drive to weigh in. You couldn't imagine stuff like that only a decade ago. Look what knowledge and experiences are now accessible to us, who used to be just a silent audience. Wonderful!
