April 15, 2002: Google Answers?

Astute reader Patrik wrote in about, a new site Google has set up. It currently redirects to the Google homepage, but who knows what will be here eventually. This is typical Google behavior: even originally redirected to the Google homepage. On the other hand, random strings like return an error from the browser.

Update: Matt Haughey writes to let us know about Google's old Questions and Answers service (mefi thread) which unfortunately seems to have been taken down with no archives available. (If anyone has an archived copy of these pages, do let me know!) It's definitely possible that this is related.
