Flickr Co-founder Launches Hunch (and we have invites!)

April 1st, 2009 · 4 Comments · Community, Competitions, Small Companies

Social websites run by lovely companies often have lovely communities. One of the earlier social websites with a lovely community that was kind, friendly and helpful, was Flickr.

Last week Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake announced her latest project – – with a delightful blog post.

Hunch is a decision-making site, customized for you. Which means Hunch gets to know you, then asks you 10 questions about a topic (usually fewer!), and provides a result — a Hunch, if you will. It gives you results it wouldn’t give other people.

You can also teach Hunch about yourself by answering a never-ending series of questions many of which are witty and bizarre. Your answers help build a “taste profile” which the system uses to choose just the right Hunch for you.

I’ve been playing around with the service for a few days now and I love it! Unfortunately Hunch isn’t launched to the public yet but we’ve got two invites to give away to the first two readers to comment on this post!
