Quora on What Makes a Great City

Quora is a new social media, Web 2.0 app that is centered on the basics of question and answer – it’s social Q&A. A user poses a question in a specific user-created topic (say Cooking, Urban Planning, or Public Transit) and leaves it open for other users to answer.

Intelligent discussions can be started on the social platform. For example, this question on “What makes a great city?” which currently has three well thought-out answers with each listing several qualities for a great city, including Kevin Lynch’s theory on good city form.

It would be interesting to see how Quora develops as a social media tool. In the meantime follow me here.
