Knol was a portal for user-written article in many topics. It was described as a rival to Wikipedia. (Google's Wikipedia rival, Knol, goes public[IAWcite.todayMemWeb])



Closure announced on the official Google Blog[IAWcite.todayMemWeb]:

Knol will be moving to Annotum on May 1, 2012

Knol will be discontinued as a service, but we've worked with Solvitor and Crowd Favorite to create Annotum, an open-source platform based upon WordPress that allows you to continue authoring and publishing scholarly articles. You can migrate your knols to WordPress and continue your work with Annotum. After May 1, you will no longer be able to create, view, enter or edit knols, but you will be able to export your knols to and download them to file through October 1st, 2012.

Stuff to know

WebCite doesn't archive images in knol articles (if uploaded to knol site). Images hosted in external sites and hotlinked in knol articles are archived correctly.

The Wayback Machine has a good portion of Knol archived.
