Default Google Knol

Looks like Google is trying to defeat Wikipedia:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7144970.stm

If this works out, I think it'll be incredibly successful. The fact that all the information is written by experts, not just anyone, seems like it'll be much more useful for research than Wikipedia.

Yet another good ideal from Google. If it ends up working out and rivals Wikipedia their already huge user base will reach new levels.

The only problem I see with it is the best part about it. If the information is written by an expert in that field there will be less writers, and less readers because most people who use Wikipedia just wan a basic outline or understanding of the subject not scholarly information.

How long till they take over the internet completely?
