New York, NY, November 28, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Let's face it, polls on websites and blogs have been around for a long time. The interfaces have been atrocious and usually you are signing up to put ads on your site. There has been no easy way to collect the opinion of a group of people through email.
Quimble (http://quimble.com) changes all that. Quimble sports an easy-to-use interface that gives you all the tools you need with none of the usual complexity.
The idea for Quimble grew out of a large group meeting. Twenty friends of Topper Bowers (the site's founder) needed to decide on a restaurant to use for a reunion. Group email was not working as no consensus was being reached. The initial version of Quimble was born. The votes were quickly counted and comments and discussions were all held in a central place rather then scattered through inboxes.
Since that initial version, Quimble now makes it easier than ever to add a poll to a blog or website (copy and paste one line of code). Quimble has boomed with Spanish speakers which is a testament to the ease of the English-only interface.
Quimble was created by Topper Bowers from Brooklyn, NY. Topper is a 25 year old graphic designer who taught himself how to program on the web. Quimble uses many of the latest technologies including Ruby on Rails and light AJAX interface features. Every user on Quimble has a personal RSS feed of their latest polls. Many users are now subscribing to their friend's Quimble feeds in order to get the latest polls, bypassing email all together. Topper publishes a blog (http://blog.quimble.com) chronicling his work on the site.
Quimble has made a quick splash over the Thanks Giving weekend with links from Robert Scoble (http://scobleizer.wordpress.com/) and the nBlog (http://utilidades.bitacoras.com).
