Google is beta-ing its take on the internet research community concept: Google Answers. The idea is that you submit a question for 50 cents and say how much you think the answer is worth to you (between $4 and $50). Two communities of researchers then try to answer the question. The first community consists of volunteer logged in users who get to try to answer your question just to prove how clever they are. The second community consists of “experts”: if you choose to “buy” an expert’s research skills, you pay him or her the value of the question (provided you get an answer). Google takes a 25% cut.
