Aardvark is a new kind of search engine that lets you ask friends and friends of friends a question — e.g., What websites should be on's "50 Best" list? — without spamming your entire e-mail list. You have to sign up, and it works best if you're already on Facebook and use an instant-messaging service like Gchat or AIM, but once you're on, you'll find it indispensable for answering those questions that only your fellow humans can answer.
