I don't know if you're aware of sites like StackOverflow(http://stackoverflow.com/), where people go to ask questions aboutcomputer science. The questions and the answers get rated by the community,and the best answers, in a way, 'bubble up' and finally constitute a greatresource.
There are different sites with different topics. The most impressive I haveseen is MathOverflow (http://mathoverflow.net/), where only researchquestions get asked. If you check out the users, it looks like a who's-whoof mathematical research.
I was wondering if we help set up an NLP/CL site much like MathOverflow.There is in fact an incipient attempt at this (seehttp://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/2761/natural-language-processing-and-computational-linguistics-nlp-cl).This is, of course, all free. I hope there is enough enthusiasm for this,since I believe it could be a good thing for the discipline.
