Forums will always be around. There is nothing more useful for internet communication.
None of the above, because all of the technologies you've listed pre-date forums. Duh.
They'll be replaced eventually but who knows what with cause, well, it hasn't been invented yet. (or is tucked up inside some company's R&D department).
the reason that forums are pwn is that any googler with a prob can find what someone else had wrong and how it was fixed, or answer q's. i recently discovered techguy.org and it is the best forum for fixing computers.
I think forums will keep going for what, 5-10 years? Maybe then there will be something better/faster/other...
Forums rule and always will. w00t
Forums will never go away. The internet in its infancy was a forum of sorts; the whole concept behind forums predates all the "social-networking" sites out there today, and offer alot of the benefits without alot of the drawbacks. Youc ant really ask if forums will go away..because its more of a concept than it is a concrete object. People always have, and always will feel the need to belong to a community, so forums will always exist in some form or another.
It's not going anywhere. Unless net neutrality or some weirdo Web 2.0 people screw the whole thing up.

I voted "other", because I just wish anonymity would take over and we'd gt rid of the whole "ego on the internet" thing.
Forums baby Forums.
who the hell says forums are dying anyways ? ? ? ? ?
forums make u think while u type. you dont just spout out crap while on msn. i just revived a 7th month old post oh yea
forums are more popular than ever.
forums will only go away if something else, more does the same thing but more efficiently. whoever invented that will 1. make tons of money or 2. genius or 3. both
Really, I don't care if forums die. Whats important is that internet communities don't die.
Forums should be replaced with a system where people could start topics, then other people could reply to those topics.
isnt that a forum .
Forum used and are still to some extend the best thing for information, even if the topic is 2 years old you can still find usefull info, or post a question about it. On irc it's quicker but nothing remains for other people to view. I also think IRC is starting to lose people and channels, 8 years ago it was alot more popular. I don't think forums will be replaced ever but I think wikis takes a part of what forums used to do. Instead of a topic with info in multiple posts you have an easy to read page with useful links. Maybe some new things will come with this "Web 2.0" crap.
The concept of forums will live on, only with video clips instead of text. Or Flash animations. Or something. But the idea of having a discussion on a familiar topic without everyone trying to interrupt everyone else will always be popular.
