« adults that aren't adults? US university bloggers | Main | serious business blogging »

As you said, it will be interesting to see how these services sort themselves out. In any kind of evolution (biological or digital) things don't turn in expected ways. I see the research science blog as another type of Q&A system driven by RSS and guided to solve high-level problems. For example, at UsefulChem, we are currently trying to synthesize new anti-malarial compounds and I have some questions posted that very few people in the world have the knowledge to answer. But their answers could have a huge impact on the project. The challenge is to find them.

The UK National Library for Health has a pilot online question answering service, with an RSS feed.
