Wikipedia change the world, know is Google going to change the Wikipedia concept by doing it better. The solution is named “knol.” It seems to be smarter and stronger than Wikipedia. It will give money and credit to the contributors. Wikipedia ask for money, Google don’t need to ask for money.
Earlier this week, we started inviting a selected group of people to try a new, free tool that we are calling “knol”, which stands for a unit of knowledge. Our goal is to encourage people who know a particular subject to write an authoritative article about it. The tool is still in development and this is just the first phase of testing. For now, using it is by invitation only. But we wanted to share with everyone the basic premises and goals behind this project. Udi Manber, VP Engineering
