Any questions?

justcurio.us: answer a question for the chance to ask a question. This is the new web model in a nutshell, for me: a great concept and theater for sass and misinformation and silliness. Sometimes those crowds aren’t as wise as we’d like them to be.

And yet for all its worthlessness, people want to participate. I think the hint of exclusiveness (you have to give an answer first) is just enough to whet an internet enthusiast’s curiosity. It’s like youtube comments–a lot of people spent a lot of time writing a lot of worthless stuff.

Me too. Here’s the question I answered. Note how hard it is to keep the questions questions. I argued that eyeballs suck electricity.

And here’s the question I asked. Seems like you should just have a strategy for that in your back pocket.
