My take on tea, technology, and our environment

Google, Herding Cats, and Knol

Knol: Good Attempt at Herding Knowledge Cats – ReadWriteWeb

it was inevitable that big companies would spend lots of money on complex knowledge management systems. Most of those investment had very poor returns

This is probably the most interesting post on Knol that I’ve read. It’s been getting pretty mixed reviews. CNET’s Buzz Out Loud podcast, for example, didn’t seem to think much of it, but that was right after the recent Wikipedia scandal broke out.

I’ve got mixed feelings as well. It’s obvious that Google knows how to manage knowledge and harness it’s knowledge resources. I’m not certain that this will really provide something that you can’t get from, say, Ask.com or Mahalo.
