Want a Quora Invite?

March 28th, 2010 · 90 Comments · Uncategorized

I have had 10 invites for Quora, a social search site launched earlier this year by a bunch of ex-Facebookers (including former CTO Adam D’Angelo and Charlie Cheever (who previously led Facebook Platform and Facebook Connect)–and which was just funded at an $86M valuation. Put your email address in a comment or communicated it to me by some other means if you’d like one. I’m pretty sure all new users get 10 invites, so please share the love if I run out. Also, I believe you need to have a Facebook account in order to register (using Facebook Connect).

I’ll write more about Quora when I’ve had a chance to play with it myself.

    Hi. I’m interested in an invite. krishlong@gmail.com. Thanks a ton!

  • 9 Daniel Tunkelang // Mar 29, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Those went quickly! If anyone else wants invites, I suggest you ask the folks who’ve commented here. Or you can always try Twitter.

    Hey I am interested! christangrant AT gmail.com

  • 11 Daniel Tunkelang // Mar 29, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Krish, Christan: sorry, Lecia got my last invite! But that means there are now 100 invites circulating among the 10 folks I invited, so there should be enough to go around.

    For the record, I had no idea that they were about to announce funding:

    Would you say that both Hunch and Quora are addressing the same Q&A market? Also, interesting that both received significant VC funding of similar amounts at similar valuations.

  • 27 Daniel Tunkelang // Mar 30, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    I’m not sure. I’m not sure either company has quite figured out its long-term plan. For now, Hunch is oriented towards decision-making–all questions ultimately lead to a ranked set of answers–while Quora looks more like a traditional answers site. I’m also curious how the valuations were determined, but I’m sure it helps that both have strong founding teams.

  • 28 dinesh vadhia // Mar 31, 2010 at 5:29 am

    I can’t help thinking that for Q&A and decision-making – which are sort of related – that most of the information already exists in the many general and vertical boards and blogs amongst others which have been accumulating knowledge over the years.

    Most people I know tap into these vertical sources on a daily basis which offer them the precise and accurate information required for their needs. In key areas such as personal finance, babies and kids, homes, health and relationships.

    It seems as if Quora and Hunch want to centralize all that knowledge by starting over.

  • 29 Daniel Tunkelang // Mar 31, 2010 at 11:20 am

    One might make the same point about Wikipedia as a centralized repository–or even about a web search engine as a centralized index / interface. The Wikipedia analogy feels closer, since all of it is supposed to have been written from scratch. That said, Wikipedia imposes a pretty strong filter by only trying to collect objective, encyclopedic information about notable topics. That may by the right place to draw the line between what is worth centralizing and what isn’t.
