Stack Overflow Answers Your Hardest Tech Questions

by barce on September 16, 2008

From Jeff Atwood, the blogger who gives you Coding Horror, your hardest tech questions get answered at Stack Overflow. I wanted to see if somebody had coded a way to edit text fields in Vim, and bam, there was the answer.

The idea behind Stack Overflow is that the collective wisdom of technologists will always be better than the experts.

So far it has surpassed my expectations on the quality, obscurity, and speed at which tech questions get answered.

Will entropy, otherwise known as spam, kill this site? Or is its reputation system good enough to prevent that?

Has anybody stumped Stack Overflow yet?

As always, your comments are very welcome.
