What’s a Knol?

“Knol” is Google’s term for a unit of knowledge.  Knols are user-written articles on a range of topics hosted on Google’s knol site. Articles are attributed to authors who must first sign in with their real names, unlike Wikipedia whose articles are anonymous.  Content is searchable by topic and not edited by Google. The knol project was created with the notion that everyone is an expert on something and knols are a means of sharing that expertise.  What do you knol?
