Knol: Google’s Wikipedia

According to Google, “a knol is an authoritative article about a specific topic.”  Read all about Google’s answer to the online, user-edited encyclopedia at ABC News.

The actual Knol site is right here.

I like the idea, of course.  I lost a lot of faith in Wikipedia when I was looking for information about Dance Dance Revolution and learned that it’s a game involving used contraceptives.  Knol is pretty darn new to the scene, so I guess time will tell how many butts on the kick butt scale it will earn.

Thanks to kick butt and very tech-savvy Adam for sharing!
