I could not find enough time to post here recently. I certainly have been doing more reading than writing. So, I thought why not to share some of things I read? And I decided to tell you about Quora.
As you most probably already know, Quora is a questions-answers website which succeeded in doing what Google and multiple other companies failed at: provide a decent quality of responses.
Several months ago they even created their own book “Best of Quora 2010-2012“, compiled of best answers, available for free download. It covers quite a range of topics. From Steve Jobs to moldy cheese, from neurological basis of curiosity to Jay-Z. I hope to find time and selectively read the most intriguing ones.
In a meanwhile, here is the short list of questions on the website itself that I found noteworthy:
- Productivity: How do the most successful people spend the first hour of their day?
- Speed Reading: Does speed reading really work? If so, how? (no, it doesn’t)
- What is the best way to break out of a bad mood?
- What are some jobs with high job satisfaction?
- What are the most hilarious pie charts?
- Which are some of the most badass photos ever taken?
- Gaming the System: What are the best examples of people “cheating the system”?
- What are the most inspiring poems ever?
- What are some of the most mind-blowing facts?
- Innovation: What are the best new products that people don’t know about?
- What’s the single most valuable lesson you’ve learned in your professional life?
- Is Getting Rich Worth It?
- What would a modern-day evil genius have to do in order to take over the world?
- How can you maximize your happiness in life?
Add me if you are there.
