A knowl is context-free information. Knowls can be embedded into a web page or assembled into a document which conveys information in a non-linear fashion.
Knowls were created by Harald Schilly, with the first working version coming online on August 25, 2011. Schilly also coined the term "knowl". This work was supported by two grants to the American Institute of Mathematics from the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the National Science Foundation.
"Knowl" is pronounced nohl, as in "A knoll is a small hill."
