Robert Scoble links me to a new tool to play with, it is called Wondir. It is a question answer website. Now one asks what is Wondir and below is part of the answer.

“Wondir is designed to help people find practical, focused answers to questions, with an emphasis on connecting people who have questions with other people who can provide needed help. These experts, tutors, mentors, enthusiasts, and peers might be volunteering on their own or as part of an organized online help program, such as an AskA service, government or social service, corporation, civic group, professional association, university, school or library.”

How is Wondir Different

  • Wondir provides a unique combination of live human answers, broad metasearch, and deep search of the invisible web.
  • Free access means easy, unfettered access to relevant information. No payments or negotiations required.
  • Our answer policy enables answers from the largest universe of sources -- beyond what can be found via conventional web search -- including broad and specialized search services, and other question-answering services.
  • Wondir aims to be both authoritative (because many answers will be identified as coming from recognized and credible professional organizations) and egalitarian (because of a truly open policy) at the same time.
  • The core of Wondir is people and organizations who are committed to helping others (e.g., service organizations, government agencies, libraries, universities, charities, advocates, mentors) and who have a mission to reach out to others with relevant information and assistance.
  • Identifying relevant information sources and answers, and merging and presenting results requires state-of-the-art search technology and great attention to user interaction. The Wondir team is committed to the creation of a truly effective, user-focused experience.

Now I like the concept. I will for sure try it and recommend others to try it too and see what the reviews are. I liked the idea of real time chat. I tried it and had a chat conversation with myself.
