Google's Answer to Wikipedia

[Did you here lately that Jimmy Wales founder of Wikipedia has entered the search engine market by creating a search engine to compete against the likes of Google. I thought Google would be well peeved by this, however my suspicions were further confirmed when I heard that Google have decided to demote Wikipedia articles in their search engine results, and now this. I wonder if this is the start of another 'virtual' cold war similar to the notorious Microsoft and Apple decades-long scrap :- Mohamed]

Google's Knol project aims to make online information easier to find and more authoritative. Google recently announced Knol, a new experimental website that puts information online in a way that encourages authorial attribution.
