Are you on Quora? Let’s connect!

I’ve been on Quora for quite a while now, but I’ve only recently started truly being a part of the community. I’m following the Instagram and photography topics, of course, and even shared what I consider the best Instagram photo I’ve ever taken.

There’s a lot of great content, including answers from Julie Fredrickson (formerly of social media at Ann Taylor), and a fantastically amusing post on time management that includes the words “Jedi time tricks”. But if you’d like to read something that will truly give you pause, try this answer to the question What are the top 10 things that we should be informed about in life?.

You can find me on Quora under my real name — as you are supposed to be — and if you’re on Quora, too, let me know in the comments!

Near field communication tap-and-go credit cards use RFID technology to store personal data, as well as all U.S. passports issued from August 2007 onwards– including mine, issued in early 2008.
