FAQ Practice in the Net
FAQs are one of the valuable network social filtering methods.
They evolved spontaneously in the Internet in response to the felt
needs of experts who found themselves answering the same or similar
questions again and again. Maintaining a list of frequently asked
questions and pointing novices to those was and is more efficient
than answers similar questions over and over.
MIT maintains an repository of FAQs.

If someone knows the early history of FAQs we want to point others
at it. We have searched without success for the earliest history.
