Google Launches Knol

Google’s previously announced Wikipedia competitor is now open. (But, of course, it’s labeled “beta”. Gmail is four years old and has tens of millions of users and is still in “beta”. What a fucking crock.)

Anyway, here’s an interesting bit regarding Knol:

We are happy to announce an agreement with the New Yorker magazine which allows any author to add one cartoon per knol from the New Yorker’s extensive cartoon repository. Cartoons are an effective (and fun) way to make your point, even on the most serious topics.
