A More Thoughtful Web?

 

continued

"It's a safe place on the Internet to have thoughtful conversations with civil people," says cofounder Steven Clausnitzer. "With so many Internet discussion groups what you get is a lot of vitriol. Life is who you surround yourself with, and if you go to nefarious sites, you'll think the world is comprised of nefarious people. You've got to find your place."

Clausnitzer and cofounder Mark Katakowski hope to make Ann Arbor-based Hubski that place. "It's our effort to bring intelligent discussion to the web," says Katakowski.

Perhaps the best-known attempt at intelligent conversation online is reddit.com, a social news and entertainment site where users submit content for others to comment on. Katakowski calls Hubski "a marriage of Reddit and Twitter. Reddit is a community of topic-oriented forums, and Twitter is a one-to-many message platform. With Hubski, you have a feed based on who you're subscribing to, and you build your own experience by who you're following and what you're commenting on and sharing."
