Answers.com(redirected from Gurunet)
Answers.comA reference site on the Web from Answers Corporation, St. Louis, MO (www.answers.com). Answers originally aggregated dictionary and encyclopedia content from more than 100 sources. At one time, Answers also maintained a complete copy of Wikipedia, and in the technology arena, it featured Computer Desktop Encyclopedia (CDE), what you are reading now. Later, Answers became a user-generated question & answer site.
Founded as GuruNet in 1999 by Bob Rosenschein, Mark Tebbe and Mort Meyerson, it was later renamed Atomica, then GuruNet once again and finally Answers.com in 2005. A year later it acquired a user-generated question & answer site that it renamed WikiAnswers, and the wiki function was integrated into Answers.com in 2009. In 2017, the company filed for Chapter 11. A year later, the site was changed to no longer accept contributions and edits from the user community; however, the millions of existing questions and answers remained online. See wiki.
