WHY GOOGLE'S ONLINE ENCYCLOPEDIA WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS WIKIPEDIA.   —  There are two articles about Sarah Palin on Google Knol, the search company's abysmal new Wikipedia-like reference guide.  One of them is a mess: Just a few hundred words long, the article is fraught with factual and grammatical errors.

Google's Knol: So Far, Not So Good   —  You could argue that it's unfair-or at least unrealistic-to review Google's Knol in its current form.  After all, the Wikipedia-like service just went public a little over a month ago.  It takes time to build a build a repository of the world's knowledge …

Miguel Helft / New York Times:
Is Google a Media Company?   —  SAN FRANCISCO — Type “buttermilk pancakes” into Google, and among the top three or four search results you will find a link to a detailed recipe complete with a photo of a scrumptious stack from a site called Knol, which is owned by Google.

knol: content w/out context, collaboration, capital, or coruscation   —  Isaac Newton famously stated, “If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.”  This metaphor is commonly used to highlight the way that knowledge is not a single-author process.

Wade / Voltage Blog:
I'll Give You $50 for a Worse Brand Name Than Knol   —  Knol is Google's newest assault on the rest of the internet.  (They're convinced they own it.)  I'm sure it will do well, because it's a Google property, but...  K-N-O-L is their brand name?  I couldn't think of a worse name if I tried.

Bernard Lunn / ReadWriteWeb:
The Google Knol Threat to Content Businesses - a Wiki Plug-in Might Level The Playing Field   —  Does Knol (our review) make Google into a “content company”?  Mahalo founder Jason Calacanis makes a compelling case.  You can say he is conflicted, because his Mahalo venture has a lot to lose if Knol succeeds.

Dave Winer / Scripting News:
Knol is Google's Wikia   —  Wikia is Jimmy Wales' dream of doing to Google what Wikipedia did to Britannica.  Unfortunately for Wales and his investors, Google had a 10-year lead, and a huge ecosystem had been built up around it.  Google is a thriving coral reef, and one doesn't just show …

IAC's Life123 Comes To Life; Goals Include Saving You Time, Ranking Well In Search   —  If you must think of every new thing as the “something-killer” then you'd probably call Life123 an About.com-killer, or a Mahalo killer, or a Google (NSDQ: GOOG) Knol killer.
