New Google Application

Google recently launched Knol, an online encyclopedia that has the potential to rival Wikipedia. Knols, much like Wikipedia entries, can be written and edited by anyone. However, unlike Wikipedia, the author’s name is featured on the Knol entry and any subsequent changes to a Knol entry must first be approved by the original author of the Knol entry.

Many of the existing Knol entries address health and medical topics as well as do-it-yourself guides/topics. Hopefully, more entries will be added as the popularity of Knol increases.
