The Founders Series
Each quarter we will feature Harvard alumni who have taken the plunge and started their own venture here in the Bay area.
This March, join us in welcoming Charlie Cheever (AB '03) who co-founded Quora in 2009.
A Preview of What to Expect
Woody Allen once asked: "Is knowledge knowable? If not, how do we know this?" We now know that knowledge is, in fact, knowable thanks to Quora.
Founded in June 2009, Quora takes a "Wiki-approach" to questions and answers, effectively downloading high-quality knowledge, facts, and wisdom from some of the Internet's brightest minds. Want to know the hottest clean tech startups in China? Ask Quora. Want to know where you can rent a baby elephant in the Bay area? Ask Quora. Want to know what the best North Korean restaurant is in Istanbul? Ask Quora.
Charlie - who was previously an engineer at Facebook responsible for developing Facebook Connect - will talk about Quora and what the future holds for online knowledge management systems.
