Yahoo Answers Shutting Down

After 16 years, Yahoo Answers is shutting down. I was on YA once upon a time, answering questions about math and science. I haven't been on in years, but I read that like so many internet things, it has become overrun with conspiracies and partisan bickering. Still, the concept (the same as A2K but on a larger scale) was amazing. Put a question out there and there would be someone knowledgeable to help. It was much in the same vane as Wikipedia. RIP, Yahoo Answers.

@engineer,
What other sites are out there doing similar work? Doesn't "Quora" offer something like that as well?

Stack Overflow (#11) is awesome.

And they don't just do computer stuff. They also do non-computer topics under the "Stack Exchange" label.
