Ask exits search

Looks like Ask is finally going the way of the dodo.

I guess that shouldn't come as a surprise. Their marketshare hasn't really gained any traction (even with some of the mass offline campaigns they've undertaken).

The whole Q&A space seems like it really could be a source of untapped business. There's something about the whole "Ask the cloud a question and get a legit response" format that feels in step with our times. I'm not convinced the current crop of Yahoo Answers and Answers.com crowd has discovered the right model yet.
