More of Google Product: Knol

December 16, 2007 § Leave a comment

From the official blog, it sounds like publishing tools for certain people.

Which makes Knol compete directly with Wikipedia. And that, is very interesting.

If the authors are hand-picked by Google via private invitation, Knol sounds like Google Answer vs Yahoo Answer.

Will Knol work? maybe… It is difficult to trust Wikipedia on not-so-popular article. I’m guessing that’s where Knol would fit in. But then again, Wikipedia allows anyone to write articles. Much like anyone can participate in Q & A in Yahoo Answers.

Below is a sample screenshot of what Knol would look like.
