Where do you go to find answers?

There are more and more sites coming online that allow you to ask questions.  So which site(s) do you use?


These sites are more of the old way of finding out answers, you don’t really interact, just find your answer on the existing documentation that is posted:


There have been forums for a while where you can track down information that you have questions about:

Social Web 2.0

Now there is a new class of sites coming up that allow you to have a lot more control over what gets asked and what answers are given:


There are other sites and other types.  I’d like to hear if you use these sites or any others to get the answers to your questions.  I know there are blogs that you can use also, so feel free to list those here as well.

    Since there are so many sites, I normally use http://www.google.com to search for anwers.

    If I want to actively participate (ask or answer a question) I go to forums.asp.net or stackoverflow.com.

    One important site you forgot to mention is http://www.codeproject.com.

    For technical forums, I tend to use http://lessthandot.com

    For me, I would like to add the msdn blogs at http://blogs.msdn.com. They’re really helpful.

    My favorite way to find very specific resources is to use delicious.com: You find a URL that’s helpful, see who else bookmarked it, then see what else they bookmarked in the same category.  It’s a MUCH more accurate way of finding information than a search engine as it’s already been categorized by various people and has also been through various "this link doesn’t suck" filter.
