We have thousands of active webbbs and chat-rooms, many with a chatterbot
(324 active bots).

We have a wap-interface for cellphones and are working on a voice
interface. We dont need a perfect product, a positive-feedback-loop
is enough (Getting more money out of the system than putting in,
and have enough money to do more development than our competitors)

I think its easier to put an interface to an existing community
than to develop tools and sell them. And it takes time on a community
to use tools. We put free wikis to our system and it took 2 years,
same with other features.

imho qa-systems are killerapps on cellphones, google is not enough.
But you need manpower to develop then knowledge-base. We try it on
our community with over 1 million users.
