! Everyone join in and wish Blogger a happy 2nd birthday!
with Dan Bricklin (The man who saved “blogging”?) is a pretty good read, overblown title and all. The interviewer manages to catch a certain spirit that I think is very real – a certain seriousness that attends Interesting Projects.
But the article is totally bizarre at the same time. Lots of nice questions about his thoughts on Blogger and the place for personal sites and small companies in the world… and then right at the end blammo: “There’s some skepticism out there about whether Microsoft can resist coming up with a lock-in regarding SOAP. Do you think the big companies will support something like XML-RPC in addition to SOAP 1.1?” An editor’s note longer than the question itself was required to give enough context to readers!
No shit! Blogger is much faster now.
