Our vision has taken a long time to grow to its current level of sophistication
Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
QuestionMaker.com began as an idea in 2002. The vision was to provide a venue for collaborative knowledge sharing, much like similar sites about.com and wikihow.com, by receiving input from an active community of users from all walks of life, ranging from college students to professionals. Based in Mesa, Arizona, QuestionMaker has evolved steadily and now operates with a core of full-time and part-time editors who oversee the site's dynamic membership and content.
"Our vision has taken a long time to grow to its current level of sophistication," said Clay Combs, QuestionMaker.com spokesman. "We're excited about the re-launch of the site because we finally have the mix of platform and professional staff right. We are dedicated to the vision of establishing and maintaining an accurate, accessible, enjoyable knowledge base. No other venue but the web allows users to do what we're doing."
While collaborative knowledge-sharing projects online are not new, QuestionMaker stands out for its simplicity of use and breadth of coverage. The current question and answer genres include: Arts and Entertainment, Business and Finance, Cars, Education and Employment, Gardening, Geography and Travel, Hobbies, Law, Literature, Marriage and Relationships, Mathematics, Mechanical, Miscellaneous, Nutrition, Pets, Religion, Science, Sports, and Technology.
"I really can't say where or how we'll grow, because the point of what we're doing is the organic assimilation of information," said Combs. "That's what makes QuestionMaker so exciting. The site is never the same from one day to the next. There's always a new branch of information and discussion developing. It's frankly fascinating to watch."
