"A few minutes ago I looked up "anemia" on Knol, with no
results. Then I looked up "hair" and got eleven results. The top
result is for this article on hair loss, by Rob E. Angelino,
Founder Hairlab center for hair restoration. Or so it says at the
top. At the bottom it says "Copyright © 2005-2007 United
Global Media Group, Inc. All rights reserved". Not sure how that
squares with Knol's defaulted Creative Commons Attribution 3.0
License, but it's significant that Mr. Angelino also has
collaboration closed on the document."
