P2PQ is a freely-available client-server system that uses a modified instant messaging framework to capitalize on the shared knowledge of unique individuals. Users ask questions and have answers returned to them using a simple form-based interface to input or access information from any device. P2PQ's integrated feedback system filters questions and then redistributes them to the appropriate parties based on each users' pre-specified fields of knowledge. "Answers" are generated by combining a question's aggregated responses with the user ratings of each expert "source." Currently, a Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT version of the P2PQ Client Beta is available for download. Linux and Mac OS versions are in the works.
