Has anyone out there started using Google’s Knol yet? If so, what do you think? If not, why not?
Just browsing, I DID find eLearning, iPhone, Adobe Captivate and did NOT find mLearning or immersive learning…what’s up with that people?
Unlike Wikipedia, Knol puts a stronger emphasis on authorship and even encourages users to start different ‘knols’ for the same subject. Google is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site, whereas Wikipedia stays away from any advertising on its site. – RWW

I found this write up in Wired, about Stephen G. Bucher’s Dailymonster, which includes a blog, a Flickr group, and now a book chock full of user participation. I find this blend of collaborative media very interesting, and can totally see it being used in other areas, especially education. Even though it combines print, it totally reminds me of an excellent “cross-platform” story telling presentation from Tejpaul Bhatia of Tej Media.
It’s a blot, it’s a blog, and now it’s a book. When Stefan G. Bucher transformed random inkblots into bug-eyed freaks and posted a new creation each day at dailymonster.com, visitors to the site began hallucinating — er, imagining — backstories for his drawings.
