Quora’s elegant community design wins it funding from Benchmark

The company’s co-founders, Adam D’Angelo, who was Facebook’s chief technology officer and Charlie Cheever, who was another early Facebook engineer, also invested. Matt Cohler, another early Facebook executive, joins the board from Benchmark.
