It already seems like a holiday week, but we’ll keep things moving this week as best we can.  The first interesting item I found this morning is a story stating that Google is looking to develop a competitor to Wikipedia.

From MediaPost:

LOOK OUT, WIKIPEDIA. GOOGLE IS soliciting entries for a new Internet encyclopedia that will consist of material submitted by people who want to be identified as experts.

The concept, revealed in a posting on Google’s Web site, poses a challenge to the nonprofit Wikipedia, whose entries are generated by unpaid, anonymous contributors. Google is calling its alternative “knol”–the company’s shorthand for a “unit of knowledge.” Submissions are currently by invitation only as Google fine-tunes the system.

Google may be able to own the entire world is 5 more years.
