Yahoo Answers

Interesting read at MIT Technology Review on the soon to be released from beta Yahoo Answers:Answers By the People, For the People.

Something paradoxical is happening on the Web: just as digitization projects are making available terabytes of expert knowledge, previously tucked away in books and journals, more and more Web users are turning to each another instead of published sources for answers about everything.

This trend has some serious implications for higher education. Problem is we haven‘t realized it just yet. It‘s hard to address an opportunity when it‘s not even on your radar.
