Welcome to the Google Knol Resource Center.
The Google Knol project will feature authoritative, user-generated articles on virtually any topic. According to Udi Manber of Google, the goal is to highlight the authors of the articles, just as a book or magazine article features an author, so that users can make better use of the content on the web.
