Founder Adam D’Angelo responded and listed his priorities (Ok, ok, Quora hasn’t completely fallen off the face of the earth).

He writes:

  • Make massive tradeoffs to get the first version done quickly
  • If it’s a project where users interact with each other, think through the incentives
  • Keep things simple
