As the Gulf Times pointed out today, Google has launched its new knol service, which allows anyone to create their own page on anything they want. The service has prompted much debate - is this a feeble attempt to combat the popularity of Wikipedia, an innovative new service of its own or a sinister move to dominate the content of the internet by a company that already dominates internet search? Like Wikipedia, Google allows users to create their own pages, although unlike Wikipedia users can choose to retain control of their pages, allow approved editing or, like Wikipedia, throw it open to all and sundry. It remains to be seen whether the site will be a success or not, but in the meantime you may want to check out our knol page on Qatar!
