An answer's value can only go down...

"A Day at the Park", a long scrolling comic that features two interestingly designed characters having a discussion of their respective collections: one of questions, the other of answers. By illustrator Kostos Kiriakakis as the start of a series titled "Mused", along with "Lost and Found", about names and games and stuff...

Answer on Back

Flash cards are an effective study aid because they are founded on the principles of rote and memorization. With Flashcard Exchange | Study Stack and Flashcard Machine, you can use web-based flashcard makers to create, share, export and print flashcards to assist your studying.

The Non-Expert

Experts answer what they know. The Non-Expert answers anything. For example, Can We Date? — home to this flowchart to help determine what is legal, and what is socially acceptable. [previously]

Ask Facebook

Facebook is advertising for beta answerers for their new Q and A site/product.

Welcome! [Name] is a collaboratively edited question and answer site for [audience].

Programmers may already know about the blogs of Jeff Atwood (Coding Horror) and Joel Spolsky (Joel on Software), or their increasingly-popular collaborative Q&A site Stack Overflow. Additional sites have been introduced recently for other audiences: Server Fault for system administrators and IT professionals, Doctype for web designers, and the just-out-of-beta Super User for "computer enthusiasts" (previously and inspired by).

Hey Jeff - Where's my "advertising your new site" badge.

Stack Overflow 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 of sites to pamper to your anger. Finally, if you're wondering what a stack overflow is, then wikipedia has the answer.

Why so many questions?

Yes, another one. Best Rest of the Web. There are lots of questions sites now. Amazon opened Askville. And now Windows Live has "QnA". I'm all for competition and innovation, but really, why does the question-and-answer site format attract so much "me too" behaviour?

Not that the answers make it any better.

Pet Peeves in Customer Service Why cellphones are so proprietary, why PA systems sound terrible, why rental companies gouge on gas, and answers to other vexing questions.

Web 2.0 Question & Answer Sites

So we all have our favourite question site. And we all know the big-brand takes on the space. But now there's the Web 2.0 Q&A sites: Wondir (Wondr?), Oyogi (in beta, of course) and the latest, Yedda. [via TechCrunch]

"The saxophones would eat the same thing as Gene [Vincent]." - Now how do I mark this as best answer?

There is a new question asking website. It is powered by humans via the Mechanical Turk program. Said the Gramophone has a bit of fun with it.

Pourquoi? Des question : Des réponses!

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

Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?

AskPhilosophers what they think about philosophical problems! A philosophical version of Ask MetaFilter. Not much is up yet, but the lineup of panelists is brimming with top-notch academics. Hopefully the site will take off.

I was justcurio.us

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

I prefer AskMe

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

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]

15 years ago today, Dan Rather was attacked by a man yelling, "What's the frequency, Kenneth?". I found a questionable but humorous explanation for the incident at www.thepetdetective.com. A few other questionable but humorous theories abound there, including What REALLY sank the Titanic? and Why are they called "Grape-Nuts" if they have neither grapes nor nuts?. My favorite link, though, is 99 Wacky Ways to Order a Pizza. I snarfed up some soda pop while reading this.
