Things we find along the way…

Grassy Knol

What does a tooth pain, toilet training and head lice have in common? They are all “Knol’s” on a new site by google called… you guessed it Knol. A Knol, defined by google is a unit of knowledge.  Google claims that Knol will help billions of people find information that they would not otherwise have access to.

To me Knol feels like wikipedia styled to google’s liking. That said Knol does a lot more than wikipedia to verify the authors of their content. Knol also disables public editing making their information more reliable… or so google would have you believe.

Check out Knol here
