There is a call for proposals for an art show asking artists to respond to the theme of Yahoo Answers. I am thinking about whether or not to submit to it, and what sorts of things you could work with in terms of its content.

It like a fourm we have here sort of?

Ideas about sharing information, communicating with people annomyously, asking things that are 'too embarassing, emotional, mundane, or existential' and also why people sometimes ask questions that they already know the answer to. (rhetorical questions?)

I don't know how much I want to wade through some bad internet junk stuff/stupid questions/offensive things in order to go through with it, but it might be an interesting exercise. I like the idea of sharing and stories, so maybe a book of some sort.

Anyway, whaddya guys think about it, do you use Yahoo Answers?

I barely understood that video


I do use it. Mostly for questions involving entertainment. What is _________'s best album? Or I'll try to find some movies from a particular time period or genre or a game or something.

It's also useful for practical things. I've asked it things like "When can you plug in a fridge after a move"

In short: Good for entertainment, and practical things, bad for life advice as there are a lot of trolls. Some people clearly are pretending to be ridiculously stupid to shock the kids and clueless parents that surf the site answering questions
