Facebook jumps on the Metafilter Bandwagon with New Q&A Offering
Other recent entrants in our market include Ask.com
, which is relying on experts to answer questions, Aardvark
which asks your friends to do the work, and our favorite love-to-hate-em, Yahoo answers
which is teaming with both terrible (hilarious) questions and answers
The Facebook offering will be totally public and searchable by google, with questions answerable by anyone with a Facebook account. It looks like the questions you ask will be tied to your real profile.
Anyone in the Beta have a screen shot?

Google has released an experimental search tool, Google Squared
, that presents search results in the form of a table. Each column represents some attribute or dimension of the things returned - for example, searching for US presidents
yields a column for date of birth, and rows for Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, etc. [more inside]

is now out of beta. Designed as a question and answer forum for programmers, it's been made to fill the gap currently filled by sites like the much hated and oft mispronounced Expertsexchange
. If you're sick of having to scroll to the bottom
, and you write code, then this could be for you. The site has been made by a team headed by Jeff Atwood
and Joel Spolsky
. These are two uber-bloggers who've made a name for themselves talking about how to code. Of course, for haters of Stack Overflow, there are already a couple
to pamper to your anger. Finally, if you're wondering what a stack overflow
is, then wikipedia has the answer.

"Les petites enigmes de tous les jours" - Interesting site akin to AskMe, "en Français."

AskMeFi for the curious masses. Not nearly as helpful, but can be amusing.

Ask and ye shall receive -
Another forum in which to ask questions. It appears to operate somewhat like Ask Metafilter. I think I'll stick with AskMe, but perhaps I will try some of my questions that never really got answered over at Wondir. (via Boing Boing)

Science Times: 25th Anniversary
The first issue of Science Times[weekly section of N.Y. Times
] appeared 25 years ago, on Nov. 14, 1978. Its guiding principle ever since has been that science is not a collection of answers, but a way of asking questions, an enterprise driven by curiosity. To celebrate the anniversary, we pose 25 of the most provocative questions facing science. As always, answers are provisional. [free reg req'd]
