Here’s how to send an email to author: Virginia Hefferan

Perhaps we can blitz her.The article is from her blog: The Medium and called “The Oracle Collective.”

thanks for link shilolo.

to answer the Q: the article only mentioned one real Q & A site which is Yahoo. it mentioned AskJeeves but talked about how it wasn’t nearly as good and confusing. and it mentioned the 8 ball which isn’t a real community site. Yahoo Answers is a big Q&A site, so I don’t see anything wrong/weird about it. After all there has been an article devoted only to Fluther on NYT site too.

Thanks for the link. That is it, shilolo—I have to learn how to import links like that.
