In January of 2010 at the EpCon 2010 conference in Waterloo Thoora founder and CTO Chul Lee stated with boldness and conviction that he wanted "Thoora to be the Google of Canada."
Over the past three years, the Thoora team had grown to 20 employees and built a patented engine to help discover, rate and deliver the highest quality, most trusted, and relevant content on any given topic.
We would like to thank each and every one of you for participating in this crazy journey with us. Your engagement with Thoora and your feedback have been remarkable, and we have loved learning from you. We definitely wouldn’t have gotten as far as we did without you.
We will leave the service running until noon EST December 15th, 2011. At that time we will suspend it indefinitely. This includes the website, the API and Wordpress widget, and the Android tablet app. You will automatically be unsubscribed from our mailing list, and all of your account information will be permanently deleted.
Based in Toronto, Thoora was founded by University of Toronto PhD Chul Lee, a data mining and search expert, along with Kyu Lee and Byron Ma.
