“PLEASE REMIND AS MANY PEOPLE AND AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE; THAT 2ND OF OCTOBER IS WISDOM DAY AND ASK THEM TO PASS ON THIS INFORMATION TO OTHERS WHO MAY PLEASE PASS IT ON FURTHER”.
please write below this line .
The last few months have been very exciting for me. Apart from a prolonged spiritual experience I have met some very exciting people. One of them is Steve Creamer the power generator tycoon. He has promised to have a lunch meeting when he is back in New York next month to explore my invention of vacuum power generators and our common goals of spreading wisdom. Then I met an international designer who took my book and said he will read it over the weekend and then pass it on to a major radio show producer, he also is friends with the biggest baker in the world and he is going to introduce me to him for my fast cooking flours patent. He has also agreed to become co-founder of Wisdom Day! Then I met this beautiful and dynamic Chinese business executive who is buying 100 of my books to promote them in LA. She is also going to translate it into Chinese and have it published there. She has also agreed to become a knoller! I have translated my book in Hindi and Urdu and it will soon be published in all three languages in India. Then I met a popular TV show producer who liked my ideas. He said that I should have my own show. It is possible for free! He said to Google MNN.org, and it is located just a few blocks from my showroom. I am sure there are similar programs in the rest of the US. I am also happy that some of my knols are coming up above Wikipedia on the main web! I have now realized that just writing knols will not cut it; I have to go all out to promote them through all means possible!
Then I have Morgan James Publishing who wanted to publish ‘How to become wise’. I said this one is already published by my friends mom-in-law so I do not want to take it from her. So I have offered them my second book, ‘You’. This second one is under review by them.
All those having original ideas should check out this website.
This is a reminder of the Open House tomorrow Thursday, July 15th from 1-3pm at MNN’s Open Studio. See you then!..
This is not crying this is excitement! At least even if all my efforts amount to nothing surely there are others who will now take up this opportunity!!!SK @ KS
I think when I post statements like, “I am also happy that some of my knols are coming up above Wikipedia on the main web!” It is pure joy; can you please explain how it is crying? Can you believe that the subject oftime is the most complex and yet my knol on eternal time is coming up #1. Do I deserve to feel happy or not?

You mean by no, you will not tell anybody about it.
then I would have written it below the corresponding text and not below another text .
Yes, it is a matter of happiness if your article comes in the top 10 google search results. More so if it appears at the top itself. But, we need to keep improving the article especially when it is coming in top 10. Otherwise it can go down quickly also.
Discussion solves many problems if not all.
Trophy dreamer. Interesting term. Selfless trophy dreamer. Still more interesting.
Today there is an article in our newspaper. When your child wants something you also want, you are very happy to give it to your child. You will feel very happy doing it. You do not feel your are losing it. So if the society wants what you want, if you can give it to the society and still feel very happy about it you reach into that description of selfless. Self and society. Can society command equal or more importance compared to self? Socialism will automatically come if everybody can put society equal to or above him.
Wikipedia is certainly person oriented if not author oriented. I feel. Of course I do not know much about it really. But some body wrote internet is the outlet of stifled energy. Wikipedia stifled the thoughts of many. Knol sensed and opened an avenue. But still they have not done a proper job. We are struggling because of that. Xomba has 3.2 million visitors per month. Knol has only 250,000. Why? We need to think about it. The success of knol is our responsibility. Authors’ responsibility. I see page views for new knols every day. Out of 750 knols, only 50 knols have more than 10 page views on first day. We have to convince every knol author that after a knol is posted, he has to make at least one message through email, or social media. People can come to this bulletin board and say I posted a new knol. They can go Knol Promotion board and say I posted a new knol. There are separately knols with the title New Knols. There are subject wise bulletin boards There is a knol help discussion board. How do we communicate them to make at least one extra message somewhere after posting a knol. That one step could bring substantial improvement in page views to knol.
Yes I am a dreamer, even the founders of Google started out as dreamers as everyone does. The knol platform itself is till today a dream that is being pushed along by knollers like us. It has not succeeded yet because of people like you who are pushing half baked ideas. You still have not been able to make clear what is Wuffy and on top of that you have driven many people away from our group. Randy is the last one who has lost interest.
You say, ‘as far as I know wikipedia is not author oriented ‘. Without authors Wikipedia is nothing. It is just a joint faceless venture posted by several authors!
You say you will not write below the line but what you are doing is removing my post from the top. This action has nothing to do with your writing or not.
You keep pushing my post away from the top; why?
I have some clues as to why the Google management has given up on knol. They wanted the knol platform to be original, creative and “SELFLESS” but we have turned it into another commercial and bickering platform with many half baked and below par knols.
But we have to appreciate that each of our active members is doing a very good job even today. Randy is promoting KAF even today much more actively. KS is to be credited for the growth of this knol bulletin board. SK even today thinks of grand events and promotion for Knol. Probably he does not have others who take it from him and take it forward. I do not think of plans which require money at the moment. But may be we will in the future. Definitely SK will chip in at that moment with his fund raising interest and ability.
I always appreciate Behavioral Finance Website of PG. He is building a comparable knol portfolio. MAK is very active and enthusiastic and he is acting as the bridge between the productive Arabic author community and others. Alberto Aune gives very powerful ideas. I am implementing his suggestion only as India Knol Day and India Knol Month.
No doubt some persons left us but I think they should have stayed back and allowed things to settle down. We are not into any destructive activity. Some persons may not like my idea. No body may like my idea. It might have serious flaws in it. It is ok. Let me start giving my ideas with the thought that there may be flaws in it. If nobody accepts it, there is some flaw. I keep looking for the flaw. I try to improve my idea. Everybody has to be patient. May be a new avenue comes up and provide the way for the stifled idea.
I appeal to all. After every group discussion, there has to be group appreciation. We have to become friends once again. The discussion on ideas is over and action program is decided and will be implement. But our group feeling has to come back and personal affection and regard have to be reestablished.
We all know each of us is very mature person. Many of us are past 50 with some significant success in life. But still in discussing an issue, somebody says you are immature. That is only momentary and specific to an issue. But genuinely we know all of us are very mature people. In writing on knol, we are looking for some self satisfaction and selfless social wealth building. A knowledge base is wealth of the society. We are buidling it.
I simply didn’t read the word “above” in the right way . now I got it .
“You keep pushing my post away from the top; why ?
you didn’t ask the team if that is a top theme . I think it is not .
