Stack Overflow

There is a new web site for software developers to ask questions and get answers: Stack Overflow.

I've been one of the site's beta testers for the past month, and I've been impressed with the quality of the information available on the site. Of course, there are plenty of a-holes there, but I think it will become one of the top go-to sites for developers.

What's cool about Stack Overflow:

It is now open to the public. Please read the FAQ before participating, and please don't screw it up.

Also take a look at Joel Spolsky's explanation of how it should work, and Jeff Atwood's blog entry.

I would add one thing to that:

"For God's sake, don't be afraid to vote a bad answer down! Sure, it costs you some XP, but that's what you have XP for!"
