The Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites is growing

The Internet is a great place to find answers provided you know where to ask. Search engines can only go so far. The Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites is unique because the user community votes up or down answers & therefore the best answers float to the top of the list. People who provide good answers get “reputation points”, which gives an additional indication of the value of an answer.

It all started with the site Stack Overflow over 2 years ago. 82% of 1.1 million questions there have been answered so far on the forum that has 415,000 users. Anyone can propose a new Q&A site but there is a process it has to go through to show a lot of people support that topic. If a Q&A site for a proposed topic goes successfully from the Define & Commit phases & if there is sustained interested in the Beta phase, that site stays.

I currently follow these Stack Exchange forums during the weekends -


I'm looking forward to see the proposed Project Management site, AskAboutProjects, get into Beta & beyond. If that topic is of interest to you, go vote for it.
