 n.— «Earlier this week, we started inviting a selected group of people to try a new, free tool that we are calling “knol,” which stands for a unit of knowledge.…At the heart, a knol is just a web page; we use the word “knol” as the name of the project and as an instance of an article interchangeably. It is well-organized, nicely presented, and has a distinct look and feel, but it is still just a web page.» —“Encouraging people to contribute knowledge” by Udi Manber Official Google Blog Dec. 13, 2007.

  • A name not used enugh, definately:
    PolyGlot , wich, is what MANY CEO/Executives, and, many foreign aid orkers actually MUST be before getting some jobs.. look that ne up! Interesting word for , a businessman , nonetheless, VERY worthy of attention! It means, to speak several langu8ages or, be atleast part fluent and able to get by in diplomatic speeches with other countries, this is NOT necesseraliy a political job, it is actully more business orientated.. nd the word, just aint used, why :??
    I also, look forward to seeing more about this whole project i seriously think wikipedia needs a HUGE change, this is a GREAT way to start! ask for catchwords! what better damn way ?
    excellent job!
