Yesterday, I hosted a Quora session on gravitational waves and a bunch of other topics (LIGO, black holes, and more). I think it went pretty well! I answered about 25 questions and received (so far) about 40,000 views. Some of the answers have also been republished at the Huffington Post. I hope this got more people interested in gravitational waves!
