Just saw @joshconstine's write-up on TC via @iansilber. Makes a ton of sense for Quora to move in this direction and the lineup looks fantastic. The design looks familiar though. 😉
@rrhoover must be quite the compliment to have a big startup like quora use a similar design as yours.

@rrhoover Would be keen to hear the story from @abhinavsharma + team on this... @abhinavsharma - why did you feel that this needed to be built? Is the team reliant on the reputation of Quora to drive this forward or was their an unmet frustration that you observed with other AMA-style platforms? Also would be keen to hear the development process... where did the idea from and how did you move forward to this final product? 😀

@rrhoover Surprised they didn't do it before. Well, hope it'd help Quora.
@bentossell I've always thought that the Reddit IAma's could have been monetized a lot of different ways without hurting the experience for users. Things like embedding rich media, adding ads in the background, etc. we'll see what they end up doing.

Logged into Quora this last week and David Rose (well known top Quora user) was doing a live AMA. I thought, hmm another AMA. I am not sure if it was the first one they did, but I do think the AMA concept works best when the guests questions are somewhat on point with the content of the site. Reddit seems like an 'anything goes' AMA, PH like a product/tech oriented AMA and hopefully Quora AMA's will theme around specific field expertise.
