Google launches Wikipedia competitor

Google’s Knol is now up and running!  A knol is “a unit of knowledge” according to the page (i have to look that one up).  Like Wiki, people can add their own knowledge pages.  But these are signed by the authors, making them a bit more responsible for their knols.  They range from how to unstop a toilet to how to backpack to everything you wanted to know about syphilis to how to make the best cole slaw.

Eclectic?  You bet, but that is the nature of a wikipedia!  Oops, I meant online knol. Sorry.
