Aol launched a new site called “Owl” – the site is described as “a living, breathing library where useful knowledge, opinions and images are posted from experts the world over.” “Owl is less like Wikipedia than it is like Helium, which also pays for expert articles. Owl seems more of a testbed for Seed than anything else. Seed, of course, is Aol’s new low-cost content management system for soliciting articles and photographs for its network of existing Websites. Owl will crowdsource freelance work from “experts” who submit articles about movies, books, health, sports, money, parenting, computers, and other topics. An “expert” is anyone who gets approved through Seed. Contributers get paid a little bit and the articles tend to be more how-to advice,” revealed. To sign up and start sharing your expertise, visit SEED.
