Update: Here’s Knol-ly
Google has finally unveiled their Wikipedia competition, called Knol. There are a good number of articles already written and the authorship of articles remains a very impressive feature. The ability to have closed collaboration and feedback from users that can be taken into consideration, allows for a much less volatile system for editing.
I will be curious to see how far this project goes towards attaining the role of a timely and peer reviewed collaborative encyclopedia.
