Show / Ask DN: We're Taaalk - a platform for interviews & observable conversations. Would anyone from DN like to be interviewed?

almost 7 years ago from , Product Manager at Shufflehub

Hi DN,

Please check out http://taaalk.co/.

Taaalk is a platform for observable conversations about interesting things and between interesting people. If Medium and iMessage had a child, it's what it would look like. Here's an example of one: http://taaalk.co/taaalk/business/ben-rometsch-theo-ford.html

We're looking for people with a passion for design who want to get involved by either taaalking with one of us directly about it or having a conversation with someone they know using our platform.

We'd also love some feedback on the design!

To get involved:

Email us at hi[at]taaalk.co Hit us up on Twitter via https://twitter.com/gotaaalk Or comment below and I'll get back to you.

Thanks for any help! Josh

    I like the format! Like Daniel mentioned, it does look a lot like AMAs that you might find in Slack groups.

    Not sure if you already have people lined up to interview, but if not, I'd love to give it a go.

      Hi Maurice,

      We have some - but we'd love more! So that would be really great.

      Could you email me at hi[at]taaalk.co so we can talk there.

      Thanks very much! Josh

    I feel like that would be an amazing platform for AMAs done in Slack groups — if you can find a way to integrate in a nice way with Slack you'll have a lot of content piping in automatically.

      Hey - cool idea. Is that a thing that happens currently? I've never been involved in one.

      If you have any links or examples I'd love to see them!

      Thanks, Josh

        It's a new trend, but I'm seeing it pretty often.

        There's a UX Community on Slack that did an AMA with Steven Portigal and then Louis Rosenfeld this month.

        Hashtag Freelancer did one with Brennan Dunn a while back, and Talk Shopify is a new one that's doing AMAs as well.

        Basically you have a bunch of people talking all day on these groups, so they figured, well, why not bringing relevant industry leaders to join the conversation.

        I'd say get in touch with some of these groups to figure out the best way to make this work, but I feel it could be a great match.

    Really like the concept! Enjoyed reading. Not sure I'm one to be interviewed though!
