The article reports on the launching of Knol, a online publishing service from Google. The project, considered as a Wikipedia rival, includes a series of authoritative articles about specific topics, written about people who know about those topics. Every Knol will have one author or a group of authors expressing their voice or opinion on a given topic. The service could help Google by giving it new web pages on which to run advertisements.
