AOL buys Yedda

In a "me too" move, AOL has purchased question and answer site Yedda for an undisclosed amount.

"Incorporating Yedda's unique technology into AOL enables us to bring together our traditional search resources and an entire community of people to help users quickly find answers to questions," AOL President Ron Grant said.

(in other words, "bolt on).

Hopefully one day there will be a meta-interface for all this knowledge, rather than the many Q&A sites that exist. This is something Jimmy Wales should be focusing on, not search.
