The blog raises a question that I also had...
Will Google preferentially elevate Knol articles above Wikipedia, or will the conventional PageRank algorithm apply equally to Knol, Wikipedia, and all other competing articles on a given subject?
I hope Google keeps the playing field level, and doesn't preferentially rank Knol pages above all others. The competitive model works best when the referee doesn't favor one player over the others.
Question: will Knol serve Google AdSense ads?
Answer to that question will serve to answer your question.
