KNOL - by Google

Today, Knol was launched to the public. Google's new product is their version of the popular website Wikipedia. It is not a copy however. Among the most notable differences is that the creator of the specific Knol page has control over it. No one can change your Knol pages without your permission. Google has also designed it so that the creators could benefit financially from their creations.

Despite what Google says, it does come of feeling blog-like; a highly technical/academic, non personal, collective blog, but a blog none the less. This may help some people get their ideas out there who are hesitant to make a blog (for fear of the time and constant content commitment) but still want credit, possible financial gain, and no fear of people altering their work. Over all, this has the potential to be a good resources on a lot of different topics.

Below is a link to Knol, and below that is an excerpt from Google's official blog.

"The key principle behind Knol is authorship. Every knol will have an author (or group of authors) who put their name behind their content. It's their knol, their voice, their opinion. We expect that there will be multiple knols on the same subject, and we think that is good.

With Knol, we are introducing a new method for authors to work together that we call "moderated collaboration." With this feature, any reader can make suggested edits to a knol which the author may then choose to accept, reject, or modify before these contributions become visible to the public. This allows authors to accept suggestions from everyone in the world while remaining in control of their content. After all, their name is associated with it!

Knols include strong community tools which allow for many modes of interaction between readers and authors. People can submit comments, rate, or write a review of a knol. At the discretion of the author, a knol may include ads from our AdSense program. If an author chooses to include ads, Google will provide the author with a revenue share from the proceeds of those ad placements.
