Another Ask site appears: Fluther. Fluther. I'm sure it is no AskMe.

Barf...

Tapping into our collective is like extending your entire network of knowledge. And Fluther lets you share your massive brainpower with others.

While Googling earlier in the day, I discovered a question site called AnswerBag.com. Now I know that Clinton Kelly is, in fact, gay.

I don't care about that, but I need another site for Internet drama. Metatalk is a little slow sometimes.

Sex with jellyfish. It will surpass AskMe and Yahoo by Q4 2007.

Jellyfish look really good with glasses. They should wear them more often.

I don't know, it seemed ok to me. One of the questions was actually really helpful. Not the Jellyfish one. A decent place to go to ask that second question after you've used you one around here.

"Clinton Kelly is, in fact, gay."

"Shut up!"

(I had to look up who he is, then his co-star, to find a quote from her; I wish WNTW would make ME over, though it'd require major surgery.)

This isn't really quite worthy of a mefi post, but here's something for you.

Agreed. Or maybe we could have more flameouts and huge horrible arguments here? I don't ask for much.

Fluther? Sounds like something that you do do with Santorum after hot, gay, sex.

"It took me 3 hours to fluther the Santorum!"

"Honey, will you please fluther up the Santorum? I did it last time."

I happened across Ask Me via Google for the first time the other day. It felt warm and fuzzy ...and like a frozen pea in my finger. Ask says it's a ganglion.

Anyway, we've got the jump on those flutherbutts. flutherknuckles? Must devise derogatory term...


A fluther is a group of jellyfish, like a gaggle of geese (or a taint of tilapia)

Yeah, I want guidance from a group of jellyfish, or something like a taint.

heh, they only have a collective - we have a whole damn hive ... with a mind.

I put "Red Shoe Diaries" in the answer box, and there's no post button. What a crock.

Fluther? I don't even KNOW her!
Ba-dum-bum.
Thank you, don't forget to tip your waitresses.

Yeah, I saw this site a while back and put in in my Flickr stream and ranted a little about it - the cofounder responded to me, which was nice to do. My frustration isn't so much with them but with any startup which thinks they can take on established players without having anything particularily new to offer. It's the same thing in the video sharing arena - you've got to be offering a lot more to go up against YouTubeGoogle, no? And nine times out of ten they don't really have anything different. Ah well... what can ya do. Me, I came to MeFi for the knowledge and ended up staying for the snark (and the knowledge, and the users), amongst other things.

Could this site compete with askme? Nothing could be Flurther from the truth. Ah ha-ha.

Brand loyalty is silly.

Also, did anyone else catch the yahoo APIs loading on fluther?

But they don't look good in hats.

Dude... I had no idea who Clinton Kelly was, other than knowing that I had a high school classmate of the same name. Being nearly 24, I freaked out a little, thinking that all of my former classmates are going on to do fabulous things while I sit here, poor and degree-less. It was a relief to find out that the Clinton Kelly referenced is, in fact, 38, and not 24.
