After closing Google Answers last year, Google launched a new version of the service, this time only in Russian (here's the English translation, powered by Google Translate). Unlike the original Google Answers, there are no hired experts and people don't have to pay to ask questions. Instead, you use your points to "pay" for a question and you earn points by posting answers or rating other people's answers. If your answer gets bad ratings, you lose points.

Russian Family Bistro - San Bruno 1 check-in here Or actually from Tanforan. At least that's how Jamie W. and I ended up here for the world's longest dinner on Friday evening-to-night. I actually wanted to go get the Duck Confit at Q, but we had to pick up pants at J.C. Penney. Russian Family Bistro - San Bruno
Google Launches "Question and Answers" In Russia Google Launches "Question and Answers" In Russia Googling Google reports Google Russia has launched a Questions & Answers service in Russia. Although Google closed down Google Answers late last year, this launch of Questions & Answers is a new flavor of such an application. To me, it looks more like a Google Groups approach than anything else. Since everything is in Russian, it is hard to understand what exactly is going on. Google Blogoscoped tries to translate the features: - You can ask questions and get answers from other users. - You can earn points for answering questions and become an “expert” in subjects; better answers gain more points. - You should label questions to make them easier to find.

Например, мне понравился такой персонаж: Генри Мейнуэринг (1587-1653). Второй сын в богатой дворянской семье. Учился юриспруденции в Оксфорде, выступал адвокатом в суде начиная с 17 лет. В 24 года купил за 700 фунтов небольшой, но быстрый фрегат, и выхлопотал себе доверительную грамоту приватира - с заданием отправиться в Вест-Индию и трепать там испанские корабли, какие попадутся. Но, достигнув Гибралтара, капитан Мейнуэринг собрал свою команду и сообщил им, что не видит смысла плыть в Карибское море, испанцев хватает и в Средиземном. Он обосновался на марокканском побережье, и всего через два года он уже был одним из самых известных пиратов своего времени и контролировал флот в несколько десятков кораблей.

21st Century Organization: Gary Colet- The State of Knowledge Ma My trip was in order to spend a fascinating 2 days in Moscow with fellow speakers Jerry Ash, Chris Collison and Richard Cross at the very first Knowledge Management conference in Russia. Attendees were all private sector organizations (now I think about it, where were the public sector?), about half of whom also presented on their knowledge management activities. The question I know you want answered is “what is happening in knowledge management in Russia?” 21st Century Organization: Gary Colet- The State of Knowledge Ma

The Empire That Was Russia: The Prokudin-G

The Empire That Was Russia: The Prokudin-G The photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863–1944) offer a vivid portrait of a lost world—the Russian Empire on the eve of World War I and the coming revolution. His subjects ranged from the medieval churches and monasteries of old Russia, to the railroads and factories of an emerging industrial power, to the daily life and work of Russia's diverse population. In the early 1900s Prokudin-Gorskii formulated an ambitious plan for a photographic survey of the Russian Empire that won the support of Tsar Nicholas II. Between 1909–1912, and again in 1915, he completed surveys of eleven regions, traveling in a specially equipped railroad car provided by the Ministry of Transportation.
