After Google Wave, KNOL to be discontinued

with 3 comments

UPDATED ON 6th of March 2012:

As part of Google’s prioritization of product efforts, we will be retiring Knol.  From now through April 30th, 2012, Knol will work as usual, but we’ve made it easy for you to download your knols to file and/or export them to WordPress.com.  From May 1, 2012 through October 1, 2012, knols will no longer be viewable, but can be downloaded and exported.  After that time, knol content will no longer be accessible

KNOL, the Google attempt, a long forgotten Wikipedia competitor, will be shutting down soon…
