Quora is up to something. I can't ignore it no more.
I signed up for Tumblr not long after it came out, because I read about it in the news. But I did not use it much. At all. Then early in 2010 a panelist during Social Media Week convinced me to get on Tumblr. I tried to sign up, ends up I already had an account. I am glad I got active on Tumblr. On Tumblr I get to meet a lot of the Who Is Who in tech. I primarily reblog there. My idea of watching TV.
But I believe Quora does it one better. A top techie will not agree to friend you on Facebook. So what if we met? I meet people all the time. That is the attitude. Besides Facebook is great, but it is for people you already know.
Twitter is a little too diffuse. And I follow so many people, DMs stopped working for me a long time ago.
I have long wished all the top tech entrepreneurs blogged like many VCs do. But guess what, a lot of them are active on Quora. They will not blog, but they will, what's the verb? They will qro.
I signed up for Quora after first reading about it on TechCrunch, and that was a while ago. And then one techie I met months back urged me to get active on Quora during an in person conversation. If you are not active, you are missing out, he said.
I have decided to show up on Quora near daily now.
