Mahalo is a website that helps you “learn anything.”
It’s my third startup, and certainly the most challenging. We’re attempting to combine four modes of learning:
1. Comprehensive search like Naver.com, Google or Bing (i.e. links, news, social, video, images, etc).
2. Content like Wikipedia or About.com
3. Question & Answer like Yahoo Answers, Vark or Quora
4. Educational Videos like Howcast or eHow
We’re going to launch version 4.0 of Mahalo in January of 2011 and that should really help folks understand what we’re doing.
Mahalo has an amazing list of backers including Mark Cuban, Sequoia Capital, Ted Leonsis, Fred Wilson, Mark Pincus, Ryan Scott, Elon Musk, CBS, Newscorp, David G. Bradley, Sandy Climan and Gigi Brisson.
