From Google Knol to Annotum
Google Knol launched in 2009 as a challenge to Wikipedia, is now being discontinued and transformed into Annotum at Wordpress with the following motivation:
Evidently knowledge was not viewed to be simple enough for Google users and therefore not a "high impact product".
In any case I have as suggested by Google transferred my knols to Annotum under the name The World as Computation, which thus collects my knol articles and also serves as a blog.
The transfer has not been seamless and has given me incentive to update the articles to keep them alive, a work which will take some time.
As of now I will thus run two overlapping blogs and hope readers will find both.
