I love it as a resource but tried signing up a couple days ago to start contributing and found it hard to use and not very enjoyable to participate. I think quora's nice interface spoiled me.

it's proven to be an invaluable resource in the step from " I learned some functional style processing" to learning python and fiddling with the flask framework. The community takes an enlightened approach in providing (multiple) thorough answers to well written questions as well as grounded unsolicited advice for next steps.
Great Q&A site for getting answers to technical questions. I was so happy when stack overflow started showing up in search results instead of experts-exchange.
(side note: experts-exchange had to add the hyphen in their url, because it looked like 3 words without the hyphen…)
@gattis: Quora's interface better than Stack Overflow's? Are you using a different Quora? Each to their own, but I personally find Quora's interface clunky. SO's isn't exactly intuitive, but after a few minutes getting used to it, it's far quicker to use and less intrusive than Quora.
