Question ID: 786788
I assume that Google's announcement of the impending termination of the answers service (unfortunate at best for a great resource) will be accompanied with a migration of its professionals to similiar services, hopefully a single service for the majority that will maintain the community. In your opinion, what are the most likely candidates? Also, with the realization that Google may not have relaxed their policies sufficiently for an answer, are there any plans to provide reference services to the participants so that they can continue building on the reputations established here?

Hi aidan3211! Thanks for asking! The answer is there is talk behind the scenes of all of that. While I cannot say the _who_ of things _here_, I can direct you to two locations on the Internet to keep your eye on, to see what we're up to collectively, and individually: Web-Owls http://www.web-owls.com A GAR ran Blog GA Alumni Association (at Google Groups) http://groups.google.com/group/GAalumni?lnk=li Open to GARs, Clients, and Commenters. Please stop in both places! ~~Cynthia-ga

There was a suggestion at <a href="http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=786788">MetaTalk</a> that Google Researchers be invited over to <a href="http://ask.metafilter.com/">Ask MetaFilter</a>. I can't speak for MetaFilter, but since I do have accounts both here and there, please consider yourselves invited.
