Mentoring via Stackoverflow

It was a slow evening for me so I created a stackoverflow account and started answering questions. For years I have found great answers on the site but never contributed back.  However in the process of looking at the questions coming in I realized this is actually very similar to mentoring junior engineers.  I don't get too many opportunities to mentor because these I end on working in top heavy teams.  As I was answer questions I got a very similar feeling as mentoring.  It seems to me like a good way improve your mentoring communication skills and give back to a community which I am sure we all have used.

Here is my profile on stackoverflow if care to cyberstalk me:
