I am asking myself this question.
Why did stackexchange fail? Over at drchrono.com we were JUST starting to use it. Over time I think stackexchange information silos would have grown. Joel and Jeff and the community really didn’t give it a chance. It takes over a year for an exchange like that to really become significant. Advocates of the stackexchanges needed to be found over time. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
When I saw that Joel and Jeff were taking down the stack exchange sites it was a sad day. I thought that they were really going to give us tools to expand the web. For drchrono.com we were planning on using the technology to give doctors a place to get questions answered (currentbilling.com). Now we need to look elsewhere for that technology since stackexhange is shutting down.
A great technology that wasn’t given the time it needed to really expand.
Either way Joel, Jeff and their team are doing a great job, they have built a great technology, so I am rooting for them and where they take it!Read More Read More
