I use Wiki for general knowledge topics. For example, I needed to know what a carburator does in an engine for my book, but I didn't need to be bogged down with mechani-speak. Wiki is the perfect place for things like that. But if I had needed more in-depth knowledge about that same topic, I would have gone to an actual mechanical website.

I do like the idea of contributors being named, and therefore accountable for what they post.

R.J.,

Your right. I've done the same thing when it's something that's not going to kill the credibility of my story. I'm hoping to find time today to visit Knol again this afternoon and take it for another spin. I think eventually it may be a good source for interviews on specialized topics with hopefully credentialed professionals. Thanks.
