The Googlepedia – 17 Dec 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand Business and Personal Finance News

Google is working on a new internet encyclopedia that will challenge Wikipedia.

The site will consist of material submitted by people who want to be identified as experts and unlike Wikipiedia it could profit from their knowledge.

Google is calling its alternative "knol" – the company's shorthand for a "unit of knowledge".
Not much more is known about it than that, currently it is invitation only for submitters until it is fine tuned.

Interesting to see how this develops. (Click image for full screen shot)
