Quora, Mozilla, Smarterer – My 3 Friends

Hello! Today, am just going to step a side(from code) and share with you some of the coolest things I have in my pocket! First of all, let us both agree that the web is too big to beat and you could spend the rest of your life roaming around in search for the right information!


I don’t know about you but I face information overload quite often and I end up not getting the answers to my questions even though I have the whole day to sit in front a computer. You are probably thinking, ‘what about just opening a browser and typing some key words into Google ?’ Yeah, trust me, you can do that and still find nothing useful.

Quite honestly, I think Google is doing a great job bringing us information when we really need it. But what do you do when nothing seems to work? You don’t have a friend to call and ask a question, you are too scared to ask your co-worker a private question, and the list goes on and on. Well, don’t sweat it! I have a recommendation for you! Quora!

Quora is not your typical website. You might say, well, Facebook is cool too or Google+ or even Twitter but you could be in for a big surprise! What I feel sets Quora a side is the quality of the information. Again, you might argue otherwise – this is my opinion. The idea that a company could be started, made available for FREE of charge and enable people from all walks of life to ask questions of all types and get answers from the smartest in their fields is just AMAZING. If that does not appeal to you, I have no clue what will.

Are you already asking yourself why I am praising Quora so much? The good thing is this; I have no affiliation whatsoever – I just like giving credit where it is due. You convince me that you are worth it and I say ‘good job kid’. The opposite is true.

So, I will make this post as short as possible so that you can visit Quora and take a look if you have not already been there! Good luck and if you have any ideas, great sites like Quora, please do not hesitate to share with me and the rest of my awesome readers.

Note: If you are teaching yourself how to code or just want to keep your skills up to date, I recommend checking out Mozilla P2PU Challenges and then hop on over to Smaterer where you can test your skills through a series of tests! You will love it.
