Quora has already opened to the public.
The start up, funded by Benchmark Capital and located in Palo Alto, came out of limited beta a short time ago.
What is Quora?
The Wall Street Journal has a good piece on Quora here and Marshall Kirkpatrick appears to have broken to early launch story at ReadWriteWeb here.
For now, early adopters have a shiny new toy.
Will it gain traction?
From what I've seen so far, the answer could be YES.
Hopefully a full review later this week but Quora has (so far) captured my imagination. It's a unique and interesting approach and has 'some' fascinating activity.
You can follow me on Quora here.
BTW - They're hiring.
