Asking questions and measuring responses on the social web is hard. Wedgies are a new kind of question. They’re fast, beautiful, multi-channel polls built for the social web. In the last 10 months they have engaged 2M social voters for publishers like USA Today, WSJ, Weather Channel, Engadget and through unique partnerships with platforms like Tumblr.
The Wedgies cofounders are Jimmy Jacobson, ex Zappos API evangelist and developer, and Porter Haney, ex marketing at Backcountry.com. Current investors include Tony Hsieh through the Vegas Tech Fund, 500 Startups, SV Angel, Twilio.
