The interesting thing here, I think, is how obvious it is that it's the community and the rules of the community that shapes a service like Quora, not the feature set or the web design or the copy used etc.

Not that this is very surprising, it's just a reminder to not just look at the feature list of your startup but also its.... well, soul.

Hacker News is itself an example of this.

It's the people not the software? >shudders< ;)
