Iroquote’s public beta was launched earlier this month and has recently been featured in ArcticStartup http://www.arcticstartup.com/
Iroquote is a company from Helsinki, Finland that provides next generation forums which are summarized, personalized, democratic and work well on mobile.
Iroquote's summarization feature provides the ability to quickly see what is the most important in longer discussions. In addition to fighting information overload, Iroquote makes discussion more engaging by letting users subscribe to certain discussions and in the future users will be able to see discussions that are most relevant to their likes first.
The forums do not have a set moderator, but the moderation rights are decided by the community. Iroquote also differs from competitors by not having threaded comments and instead of separate discussion pages has a read more button between most relevant posts to make browsing on mobile a better experience.
