At Last, A Wikipedia For Google.

Late last year, Google hinted at the possibility of creating an online encyclopedia (similar to wikipedia); Google Knol. It was released in Beta around the same period and now It has been made official Google has officially released Knol. The service allow users who are experts in their various fields to contribute to a knowledge base. These contributors will also be paid according to the AdSense revenue their web pages make. One conspicuous difference between Knol and Wikipedia is that the writer's name will be posted at the end of every article. Google Will also allow multiple articles on the same topic. Articles will be edited by third parties with the consent of the author through what Google terms moderated collaboration.
