A More Thoughtful Web?

A side-by-side comparison suggests Hubski's got the edge on intelligence over Reddit. Under Reddit's topic "What do you live for?" dogfapper writes "I wanna see breaking bad through till the end" and yangx comments "Oh shit what if I die before." Under Hubski's topic "What are you doing with your life, why, and how do you feel about it?" Isla_es writes: "I've finally reached a point in my life where I feel like I know who I am, what I want, and what I'm willing to do and sacrifice to get there. What I didn't expect, though, was this weird feeling that a clock is ticking somewhere."

Katakowski, thirty-nine, has a PhD in medical physics; his day job is doing brain tumor research at Henry Ford Hospital. "I started Hubski in the fall of 2010 as a way to teach myself programming," he explains. He made the name from his last name and "'Hub," for the hub of information he hoped to create. "It was me alone for half a year, and then I met Steve through his wife. Steve doesn't know code. He's a people person, which is important when you're trying to build a community."

Clausnitzer, thirty-seven, has a degree in business management and does sales and marketing for a Fortune 50 company. "Mark asked me to check it out," he recalls. "At first I was reticent, but it's like hanging out with interesting people, and it's become a huge part of our lives. My role so far has largely been interacting with people as a community manager. As Hubski grows, I'll take on more of the business aspects."
