> And so this post is a plea for a lot more author meets critics style events. (I see no reason to restrict those to books, by the way.)

I really agree with the parenthetical. The APA has author meets critics sessions for all sorts of books, some of them somewhat underwhelming, but never for papers. An AMC session on a big paper that's generating several responses soon after publication could be both really educational (those of us not in the field get to see what all the fuss is about), and rewarding for the participants (for the reasons you mention here).
