Writing for Google Knol

Google defines a "Knol" as a unit of knowledge and until recently it allowed people to share this knowledge by creating unique web content. If you love Knol as a place to get your content published, you'll be disappointed to hear that Google Knol is closing it's doors. They are offering the following options to current users to move their work to Annotum instead. The following announcement is from the Google Knol website.

"Knol will be moving to Annotum on May 1, 2012

Knol will be discontinued as a service, but we've worked with Solvitor and Crowd Favorite to create Annotum, an open-source platform based upon WordPress that allows you to continue authoring and publishing scholarly articles. You can migrate your knols to WordPress and continue your work with Annotum. After May 1, you will no longer be able to create, view, enter or edit knols, but you will be able to export your knols to and download them to file through October 1st, 2012."
