Google Moderator (AKA Dory) Launches
Last night Google released Google Moderator, a tool to organize “tech talks” or question and answer sessions. It is a free service that Google used internally, but now made public. Matt Cutts said Google calls this application Dory “after the fish who asked questions all the time in Finding Nemo).”
To me, this seems like a more interactive version of Yahoo Suggestions, which is actually a closed tool to just Yahoo feedback. Matt Cutts said Google may be using this tool for future Webmaster Chat sessions. It will allow people to submit questions and then have those involved in the session vote up user submitted questions. Seems like a great organizational tool.
Here is a screen capture:
Maybe I can work on getting this used on a quarterly basis over here. If you are interested in that, do let us know.
