I remember checking out Google Knol a couple of years ago when it first came out. I didn’t think much of it then. I went looking for it again today as a possible example to use in a class.
The exercise yields the irony of the day. I found it much easier to grasp what Knol is all about after reading this Wikipedia page on Knol than I did from anything at the Google Knol website. The best information I could find at Knol is this Welcome to Knol page and it’s not as helpful.
I’m a big fan of Wikipedia. Even on the topic of Google Knol, it wins out over Knol.
