Google Knol is actually more like web hubs such as Squidoo and Hubpages that allow you to publish a web page covering a single subject. But it does have some wiki elements. For example, you can open up your Google Knol to a team of people for collaboration or even open it up to the public at large. This means you don't have to author your Knol by yourself. You can be part of a team.
