Dont Even Get Me Started

by Donna Fontenot December 14th, 2007 

Google Knol. OMG. Don't even get me started on what I think of that. Talk about handing the keys to the kingdom right on over to the dictator. Here, you've already got 99% of the control anyway, please, take the rest. When does Google "become" the Internet? When we allow them to control it all, that's when. Knol is one step closer to that reality.

So, since I really hate thinking about negative things, I'd rather concentrate on something positive. Be sure to stop by on Monday because there's a contest involved and some nifty prizes. Have a great weekend, don't even THINK about the consequences of Google having the keys to the kingdom, and come here Monday so you get your chance to win. Bye now.

    I think Google should be very careful where they are headed. Stuff like this could be a tipping point where people start getting upset with them and they become evil to the average searcher.

    Isn't what they proposing simply a wikipedia-like site?

    Where will that leave wikipedia in a year or two?

    Yes this seems to be a wikipedia type site which will give the general public the control over its content. I would think that either it will put wickipedia as the #2 source of "pedia" style information or Google will just buy them outright. With Google creating there own system like this, it is going to open a new floodgate of pedia spam on there new system. As we all know with new systems there are flaws in them and loopholes that will be found. I wonder how much spam is going to be contributed to there Knol system once it goes live.
