Will Jim rejoice? Can "knol" become trendy? Will the wicked Wiki die?

Google's latest toy
is available. It's a "proper" encyclopedia, one that looks for "authoritative" individuals, so I expect Jim and other Wikipedia bashers to get in boots and all!
Mind you they need to. At present the front page of Googlepedia features clogged toilets
and how to backpack
. Ah, the joys of a fully "authoritative" and commercial encyclopedia, so much better than Wikipedia
- NOT! Yesterday to illustrate the genre of the Torah I needed a photo of conglomerate, I found this on Wikipedia
. I wonder if the googleplex will ever match that?
For now - until the authorities get busier - don't bother looking for biblical material on Google, "Isaiah", and the like are blank, though there is an article on "David
". Jim won't like it though ;) But for the rest of us it even has a photo!
