Hunch, a new website co-founded by former Flickrista Caterina Fake, is a flowchartlike tool designed to help you come to a decision after asking you a series of questions. Hunch is in beta now, but you can sign up for an invitation to check it out. The first thing I did once I got my account (my invitation arrived within a day) was check out the food-related topics on the site (after the jump).
Those topics range from the truly useful (Is it OK to send my food back? and Which artisan food producer would I like?) to the wacky (Is this really food or just an edible substance? and Which weird & creepy food might I like?).
As more people use the tool and give feedback, it's supposed to become more accurate. While a mobile version would be helpful (the "sending food back" topic is one that is best answered in the field), it looks like the creators are concentrating their resources on the site itself for now.
Any vexing questions you would ask Hunch? [via Michele]
