That's Not The Answer
I spent some time on Yahoo! Answers today.
It reminds me so much of Abuzz, the question and answers service we invested in at Flatiron in late ’97 or early ’98. I suspect that the culture of the Internet has changed a lot since then and hopefully this time, a service like this can get the kind of traction that makes it really useful.
But one thing really bugged me. I went to sign up and like most of these services, there was an option to upload a picture. I do that all the time. But in Yahoo! Answers, the only options you have are to go without a picture, use your Yahoo! 360 picture, or a Yahoo! Avatar.
I have no interest in Yahoo! 360 or a Yahoo! Avatar. So I have to go without a picture?
