Fluther is a free ‘question answer’ service. What makes it different is the straight up, no nonsense interface and the fact that it features instant chat to discuss answers. Whether these answers are any use is another matter entirely of course, which means that it has some way to go before it beats the venerable and much loved Ask Metafilter.
Imagine having five Uncle Franks to answer your car questions, eight Aunt Marthas to ask about astronomy and six Grandma Gerties to advise you on your garden dilemmas. Tapping into our collective is like extending your entire network of knowledge. And Fluther lets you share your massive brainpower with others.
