Wikipedia killer?

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 6:06 pm

http://knol.google.com/k# was released recently. It’s an alternative to wikipedia. Apparently google searches are heavily weighting knol over wikipedia. I’d like to check it out. I’d suspect it will be very interesting. Here are some of the main points:

  • The WYSIWYG interface smokes Wikipedia’s. It accepts regular HTML too if you want to use that mode.
  • I love the ability of inviting others to help you with your articles.
  • Phone Verification – Google will verify your identity using your phone. This will add to the legitimacy of the articles.
  • Revenue Sharing – You can punch in your Google AdSense code and boom your making money if people read your article.
  • Licensing – You can pick from a variety of licensing rights on how your content can be used.
