Yesterday I had the maximum number of visitors per day. 796 visitors and 1055 page views according to google analytics. Adsense shows something more as I have some more knols on other ids. I need to take a break for a few days from the computer table. My body gives an indication to stay away from the computer for some time.
Submitted to digg today
Digg is sending visitors. There is a need for knol authors to submit their knols to Digg. Similarly twitter. Of course, the objectives of knol authors are important. If they want good number of visitors to come to their knols, they have to get involved in social networking communities.
I made all my ideas clear in the directory pages that I have created. I know I cannot make a full directory for knol. So I chose interesting knols and new knols as the two themes. My project is successful so far and it will have a strong focus on science, engineering, industrial engineering, business management and research methods. In each of them, I am a member of big communities and they like my contribution in those subjects. You started your project with some ideas of your own and I wish you all the best. Knol requires many people to come out with innovative ideas and attract more visitors to the platform. I do it continuously. I bring new visitors to the platform. Please do not misunderstand if I do not answer your queries. It is because I already made my thinking clear. I keep on expanding my directory project as I get an idea of subgrouping and I see the need for subgrouping. At maximum I want to keep 100 knols in a page. As a policy I include all lists of various people provided they have more than 500 page views and as you know presently I kept them on open collaboration. Unless they are sizeable number of knols, I want to keep them on open collaboration. Then move them to moderated and then to closed.
My latest knol: What are the applications of correctly defining wisdom? My best knol ever!

09/14 KS @ A (this cat is a litte shy, but yes there is some light in the picture)
first : to find out what are the most general categories .
second : if we have a knol, to find out with (for?) wich category it matches best .
9/14 A @ KS
Yes, I’d like it. What’s the purpose of this Knol Directory? Sorry, I haven’t been following the board much.
09/14 KS @ A
much more better !
what do you think to become a co-author on Knol Directoy ?
9/14 A (in a possibly lighter color)
Trying to write more reviews now. I think they’re better than just leaving comments.
Okay, I’ll delete August posts. You’re right, it’s taking too long to load.
@ SK : indeed knol help and we, together can hammer out nothing but the best possible solutions to the present crisis. as a first step we can request knol help to make a collection browser and as a further step we can invite barack obama to join our knol wisdom express, that is our board, with its banner: the knol star structure .
@ Dsakone : i think there should be a separate directory
@ A — seems that this page is again too long .
Need some help. I opened а Business Directory, but have some problems. I think that in this directory there should be knols about business alone(the problem, review the service and so on). So should there be a separate directory for business education(history of accounting, Basic principles, Present value and so on) under relevant themes?
What do you think is better?
09/14 SK @ Team and Knol Help.
We must debate every problem that needs to be addressed. We must explore all possible avenues for improvement. We, together have to hammer out nothing but the best possible solutions to the present crisis. Given the current knowledge levels we can do it.
Individual and team knols both have a place. It depends on how they are progressing. It also depends on why they are progressing. Big teams or groups and small teams or groups and individuals are all reality. Groups come together when objectives match and prosper when there is good synergy. Whenever the objectives of the group are not clear and as the objectives are revealed, if there is no synergy, the groups wither away.
“why each of us must do the same thing separately when we can combine our efforts” (Dzakone)
this is the question of the month !
Here you will find a description of my ideas, hoping I explained everything clearly. English is not my native language so do not judge strictly
It has a search engine.
Not many tweets are there on knol now.
Increase number of tweets about knol.
There are many tweets on Digg.

My latest knols:

@ KS & KVSS
Bulletin board and Outside world.
I feel that one day the knol platform will become the black board for the latest cutting edge knowledge and proven and researched ideas. To day we are behind Wikipedia. Soon we will become their equal and then we will become the primary source for the latest information and knowledge for all aspects of life. We are all doing our part to make knol the leader in posted ideas that will make heaven on earth. I know I sound utopian, but as I have said again and again we do not have utopia only because of our own ignorance! I am trying to clear the fog from my area of research as are thousands of other fellow knollers. The only reason I am focusing on President Obama is because I know he already likes my concept of wisdom and the wisdom express. One policy decision on his part can do more than a 100 conferences!
Also this is about building an original encyclopedia of knowledge; so we have to keep posting original and refined knowledge to improve our data base of knowledge. Even if politicians don’t implement our suggestions we still have to complete our task.
Opened a linkedin group “Web authors and publishers”
What will work in a directory? What knol visitors want? We don’t know? They want your icons or they are happy with simple words? Things are not clear. Will authors come and fill your directory pages? One has to wait. But one thing – don’t open a blank page. Open a page only when there are two or three knols which you can include in it.
Bulletin board and Outside world
Yes what you say is correct. But change starts with one person and his thought. Every change starts like that. Many ideas may die within the brain of the same person very quickly. Some die within the person after some time. Some may reach a second person and then die. Some may reach a very large number of people and create a change in the material and social world. It is good that some of us could come together and exchange our thoughts. There is no problem if some of our ideas are logically wrong or practically inefficient. We keep reevaluating our ideas in response to the reaction from the whole environment and especially the reaction or suggestions from our small group environment. Some ideas may get killed by the person who came out with the idea itself. No problem with that.
09/12 KS @ Dzakone
how to arrange the collections is an interesting question .
we can do both :
first collecting the knos in main collections (about dogs) and then building sub-collections (1. – 4.) .
btw. in my opinion the listed (collected) knols on Knol Directoy belong to the collection “About Knol” .
the easiest way is to rename “Knol Directory” into “About Knol” and to make a new knol directory,
or to copy the knols into the “About Knol” collection .
Good morning to all
On these days, I have opened several collection of Knols and submitted some knols. Please look and express your opinion. HERE
I am still interested in your opinion what is better, more detailed classification of Knols, or try to do create general classification/directory. For example open only one directory “about dogs” and submit all Knols to this category.
- Main collection “about Dog” for general knols about dogs
- History – knols about history of dogs
- Breed standards – knols about dog breeds
- Medical & Health – knols about medical and health dog care and ….
09/12 KS @ SK
a crystal model of the white house is a nice idea .
good luck .
an interesting point is your characterization of clinton versus mitchel .
“mitchel is a very genuine human being but he is too soft.”
here is the difference between politics and knol .
on knol clinton would not convince me, mitchel would have a chance .
so the theory of leadership (see KVSS) is not practicable on knol .
the same thing is your saying :so I guess he owes me an answer.
on bulletin board you can say it, in politiscs it’s talking to thin air .
opened a twitter account: knoltweet
I went with my wisdom express banners to one of then Senator Obama’s campaign rallies. And I positioned myself where you know when he finishes the speech he comes down and shakes hands with people. Most people were just saying hi or wishing him success or just shaking his had. In his speech he mentioned that he was the bridge to the next brighter future. When he was still a few people away I started talking! I said to him that this bridge to the future was Bill Clinton’s line. That he was an original. His strength was wisdom. That he was an authentic person. He did not need spin. As he moved on his security was taking books from people for his autograph. I gave the security the wisdom express flier and asked him to get the Senators autograph. I already had the autograph of Mrs. Kennedy on this banner. The security refused to take two things from me. So I explained to him that the flier was for the Senator to keep and that the banner was for his autograph. He still refused. Senator Obama was already four people away, but he turned around and said to me to give it to him and that he will sign it for me. The security staff then took both the flier and the banner. It shows that even though he had moved on he was still paying attention to me!!! This happened in front of hundreds of cameras.
When the security guard came back he did not bring the banner back. I got distracted as Mayor Booker started chatting with me and then a congress women I forget her name said that she would use my advice when she spoke at rallies. I guess President Obama owes me an autograph!
This was the banner that I did not get back:
THE WISDOM EXPRESS ( TM )
From Benjamin Franklin and George Washington to Lincoln, from FDR to JFK; America has been blessed
by wise leaders. America is at that time once again when we will be blessed with wise leadership in an Obama Presidency. This is a great opportunity for the news media to highlight the powerful force of wisdom that is powering Senator Obama’s mind. We must wake up America and the world to the fact
that real positive change comes through wise leaders. So vote for Senator Obama, vote for wisdom.
But of course I have my tricks where people don’t forget me. While following him through his train journey in Pennsylvania at one of the town hall meetings he was taking questions. This was at Redding High School. I had my hand up but he said that it would be his last question while answering to some one else. So I shouted that I was following him for the last few days to just ask him a question. He looked up at me and he said, ‘All those who have got a question can go to the local headquarters or call his national headquarters or email the question and that they will get their answer.’ Well I did go to the local Redding headquarters, I called and even emailed the question but I got no reply. So I guess he owes me an answer. Again this incident also is on dozens of tapes! The question I am going to ask him is the following:
I have worked out a fool proof strategy. I make custom lighting including crystal lighting. So I am now making a
crystal model of the White House measuring 3 feet across with all the minute details. It will take me 6 months to make, which I will donate to him. There is no such thing in the world today and I tried to copyright it but I failed because the PTO told me that you cannot copyright a public property. It will cost me quite a bundle but it will be worth while to convince President Obama that we must introduce wisdom education to make education whole. I will show him the connection between much of the current mess in the world today and the absence of wisdom education.
I must say that he did invite me to his inauguration and he keeps emailing me all his latest decisions. I guess I will certainly meet him during his next campaign for reelection. I have two big regrets to tell him about. He should appoint President Clinton as the chief middle east envoy. I have observed the current envoy Senator Mitchel up close. Senator Mitchel is a very genuine human being but he is too soft.
Another regret is that he took on health care reform too much early on. It is the toughest job on his agenda and is unfortunately setting the tone of his Presidency.
@ AA (Dzakone)
rss-feed : i know as much about it as the man in the moon .
Kyriacos : to the incurable shall one not seek to be a physician
btw. your voting for SK is such a good match for our knol-star tree that i ask your permission to mount it there .
tell us more about the incident that occurred at meadowlands …
What can you expect from a guy who is writing stuff like – ‘And I can promise you – that I will more notably make your highly rated Harvard, Cambridge and Oxford universities all look like kindergarten material’. I would love to challenge him to review one of my knols which he thinks is BS.
Wait till I start the next phase of my knols. Because I was in quite a few emotional holes and instead of resigning to them I took them as my opportunity to observe them inside out! I know that though there are some experts out there who know things like nervousness, shyness, depression and feelings of suicide from the inside out, but I bet there are not many experts who know these emotional holes inside out like I do! Most don’t even come close!!! But I am going to wait till my page views go from the present under 3000 per week to at least 10,000 per week before I share my personal journey inside out. And the icing on the cake I can’t even mention right now! But I will share it all only to add my tiny bit of inside out expertise on these crucial emotional holes.
As they say the strongest steel has to go through the hottest fire. I have been hauled over the hottest emotional coals and I have paid my price to become an ‘insider’ expert on at least some emotional holes. And I am determined to share my own life lessons to make the world a better place.
I just expanded this post into one of my best knols: Wait till I start the next phase of my knols.

@ A: Book sales must not be going well for him. Maybe gather some money all of us and buy one copy? 🙂
9/11 A @ SKS
Oh dear. That is rather funny. You have one of your own! You should be proud!
Yes indeed, I think we should just ignore him. It’s obvious that the more we reply to his inane comments, the more he posts them. He’s a flamer, that one.
09/11 SKS – Angela, Sajid, Kalle and Me…becoming popular!
Angela, Sajid and Kalle: Check out http://knol.google.com/k/kyriacos-kyprou/spiros-kakos-angela-sajid-khan-and/35bwwb5jeq1lf/26. It looks like we have become popular!!! 🙂 HAHAHA!!!
PS. My advice is not to respond to that person. The only thing he wants is to be made popular and gain audience for his book. Ignoring him is the best thing to do. What do you think?

All good Day
Therefore, I propose to establish the RCC feed (Test example) with the latest news and a couple of references to main page of Knol Directory. These buttons may be located on our Knols, kind of advertising. It should be noted that It is possible to announce information on latest news about Knol and Knol Author Foundation.

seems, that there are not so many jokes about religion and atheism . so i had to fake one 😉
09/10 SKS – Jokes about religion and atheism
I’m not really into social networking sites. I prefer Knol myself. I believe I looked at Stumbleapon once, but I wasn’t impressed. To me, sharing wisdom is more important than sharing your latest LOLs on the web.
@ Dzakone, Georgian Knols
Welcome to the team! 10 whuffy sounds great.
germany’s elections : parties are classes. i do not like a class society.
digg.com : i’m already concentrated on knol . they may come to knol .
digg.com is an important community. I saw SKS and Jagadeesh as members. I request all to become members, submit your knols and approve those knols which you feel are good. It is a very important activity for knol authors. Many have included their knols there, but they did not get support of others. We as a community have to go there and provide support to all good knols and encourage other knol authors also to support good knols in turn.

Аll a good day,
First I want to thank you for your comments. As I understand you are supporting my idea.
and so that’s what I could do at this time:
I created in Google Documents spreadsheets – “Knoll tree“. There are lists of categories.
Categories I have found on the Internet – OPEN DIRECTORY PROJECT and slightly reworked them. I think we should agree all category that they will not be too many
There are 12 Main categories:
Yesterday I visited www.digg.com and registered my name. It is a collection of articles which are proposed by members and then members vote for good articles. It is like our best knol of the month competition. I saw AK name in the members list. I think all active authors need to join digg, submit knols and vote for various good knols and increase the digg score of knols. Right now there is no knol with more than 2 votes on knol.
Yesterday I had the highest page views so far in analytics as well as adsense reports.
good way to support new enthusiastic authors. Hope your whuffy accounting is live. Any update on Germany’s elections.
Please think over. Yes It will be good a start with a list and then add some more subjects if some research scholar requests inclusion.
09/09 SKS – About the “Knol Research Scholars Journal”
09/08 KS @ Dzakone
a list of directories would be great .
i think we first need the most general tree,
because it’s the easiest to agree
( A – as our native speaker – can be very useful here)
and therefore it’s the easiest way to browse in the structure .
if i want to classify a knol, i can do it like a little child
(ok, a litte child usually aks “why” and not “what”, but it’s the same stucture) .
to take your “concerto” example :
what is a concerto ?
a classical musik !
what is classical musik ?
a sort of musik !
and what is musik ?
musik is an art .
@ team : i propose to give Dzakone 60 whuffy for the list . i’ll pay 10 .
(perhaps our successful commercial authors and big players can pay a little bit more 😉 )
9/7 SK @ Dzakone.
- Unlike regular collections, a knol can only be added to a moderated collection by the knol’s author.
- Knols can only belong to one moderated collection at a time.
- Depending on the type of moderation chosen for the collection, collection owners may have editing rights to the knols in their collections.
- Collection owners can apply visual styles to knols in their collection.
09/07 KS @ dzakone
welcome to the team .
i agree that categories should be replaced by collections (directories) .
and browsing knols by categories should be replaced by browsing knols by collection trees .
i say trees because your model is a tree and because a knol or a collection can be part of different collections. does your model allow this structure ?
ok, we are all nominated 🙂
it’s a pity that AK doesn’t react on the suggestions of PG and SK .
the best would be if he gives us the knols with the best star-ranking and we give him the first, second and third
Kyriakos = nothing more than personal attacks .
Just comment on the KOTM-Jury page with your noms. Thanks for the format tip.
I feel for you. Kyriakos is commenting on my knols with nasty comments. I blocked him.
Industrial Engineering – Knols of Narayana Rao K V S S This recent collection has 100 page views already. People are searching human effort engineering. A concept that I coined.
A new knol: S-T-R-I-V-E for Success – Robert Schuller Method
Estimate of page views of top 800 knol authors : 21 million.
Made a suggestion to knol management to think of introducing knol honor system similar to amazon honor system. I made this suggestion earlier also. September 5 is teachers day in India. Knol honor system will facilitate honoring the teachers by many students. In India, the tradition tells people to treat their teachers next to parents. Practically it does not happen but a facility like knol honor system can facilitate that process wherver people are in the present global age.
Have you seen the KAF knol. We need to make them members of KAF.
K is coming !
as SK has removed the templates, i should tell you how to color a header .
first you have to make a header . then you can color it .
i’m wondering about AK . what shall we do ?
“happiness gets entrenched into the physical brain structure creating its own memory patterns“
yes, and so do stress and frustration .
our task or venture or endeavor on knol is to ensure that health and happiness are possible again (to begin with our communication here on knol) .

moderated collection : i did not know that this is sooo complicated. i made a normal one (see above) .
Thanks for your invaluable insight. I am already spending too much time on knol and I feel I should complete at least 1000 knols to cover all the angles to my idea of trying to wake up the world to the true nature of emotional intelligence education. Before I follow the advice from you and KVSS.

Ah, then I’ll vote for you instead.
Ok, I’ll delete the lower part– say from your “big bang idea” down?
to color a header, you first need a header .
you can make it by marking it and click on Format -> Minor Heading (H4) .
then (because it is still marked) you can click on Text background color .
i’m nominated by PG .
i’ll make the collection . what about a hint on the top of this page .
btw . this page is becoming too long . you can delete the lower part . i archivated it .
Please send me the email again.

@KVSS: Where can I find this journal? Have you opened a relative Knol?
Would it be OK if I nominated you for the KOTM Jury?
Yessir, that’s my new kitten, Hector. I’m afraid I really don’t have a website. You have to have one in order to create a moderated collection, so anyone on the team who has one would be perfect.
9/2 SK @ AK
Clever. Very intelligent. I wish I had half your brain power and talent. I would recommend you take one juror from every major field. Your adding a jury means you are adding a review board; so try to add an expert review board. Thus elevating the standard of your knol. Keep up the good work.
My latest knol: ‘Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people…’ Ephesians – 6:7 and
Please suggest Candidates and vote
because the team does not respond, we are the team .
one of us should build the collection .
I would be happy if you could do that .
at least you should toss up a penny .
all we have to do is to agree on some knols (see below (08/28)).
if anyone wants to participate, they can tell us .
btw. if this board becomes too long, you may delete the bottom of the page . i archived the august part .
you can color your heading by marking and coloring it .
🙂 i see, you have done it already .
there is a third way : team work 🙂
that’s the right answer 🙂
(the only interesting comment of this guy was, that politics has to do with dialogue :
if that would be true, we all would live in a paradise .
btw. i think, that dialogue is (or should be) the common denominator of philosophy, politics and science .)
till knol is really successful
we will see 🙂
