The latest view is expressed by Peter Mersch, in a discussion on Knol Discussion Board ( ) under the topic Yahoo's acquisition of an article platform - Implications for Knol started by Narayana Rao K.V.S.S. in May 2010.

"I found some very interesting people here. I hope that I can stay in contact with them.

Also I'm getting now much more emails regarding to my publications about evolutionary theory and the family situation. Obviously I can reach much more people by Knol than by books. Knol definitely had potential. There is a need for a platform like Knol. If they would continue, I even would let translate my main articles into English by the beginning of next year."

Valuation of Knol - 10 Million Dollars?

The announcement that Yahoo is acquiring (AC) for an estimated $100 million raises the question of valuation of knol.

I made a proposal for a valuation of $10 million. The estimate is intuitive and the qualitative argument for comparative valuation is being developed in a knol (article). Knol readers are being invited to express their opinions so that the valutation estimate can be refined by incorporating their beliefs and forecasts.

Knol is a Democratic Platform

Peter Greenfinch, a prominent knol author showed the weakness of Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not democracy. Only one view is supposed to exist on Wikipedia. But not so on knol. On an issue of enquiry, if multiple views are there, they exist as separate knols and readers can read all of them.

This is what is called academic freedom. Each faculty member is free to pursue and publish his research (theories) and disseminate it to his students as well as the entire society through various platforms.

Readers can read more about the discussion on Knol Author Bulletin Board. After some time I shall post the details in this blog also.
