I Gotta “Hunch” You’ll Wanna Check This Out

It’s all about who you know, and this week I was lucky to meet one of the investors in Hunch, a decision-making tool from Flickr founder Caterina Fake that “gives you its best hunch” of what you would like when you’re feeling indecisive. It made a big splash today and is the top story on Techmeme as I write.

It’s an intriguing concept. I played with it for a bit, and I have to confess I’m not indecisive enough to fully appreciate it. But I can see the appeal for folks who would like to crowd-source minor decisions and thus introduce a bit of randomness and novelty into their lives. Especially for decisions like what to eat or where to go to college.

In any case, my new acquaintance was kind enough to not only give me an account, but also to provide me with 10 invites to distribute to incorrigibly curious.

As always, it’s first come, first serve.
