Knol is Discontinued

Google made an announcement that is discontinuing Knol. An arrangement is made to transfer knol articles to Wordpress platform under Annotum authoring tool.


"Knol—We launched Knol in 2007 to help improve web content by enabling experts to collaborate on in-depth articles. In order to continue this work, we’ve been working with Solvitor and Crowd Favorite to create Annotum, an open-source scholarly authoring and publishing platform based on WordPress. Knol will work as usual until April 30, 2012, and you can download your knols to a file and/or migrate them to WordPress.com. From May 1 through October 1, 2012, knols will no longer be viewable, but can be downloaded and exported. After that time, Knol content will no longer be accessible"

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/more-spring-cleaning-out-of-season.html

For all active knol authors it is a day to remember as their dream project got grounded in its present state.

I opened some blogs to transfer some of my knols to them and present them under a focused theme.
