Google buys Blogger

Yes, really. Google buys Blogger.

Interesting searchy, data harvesting, "find me what I want" knowledge management tools sure to follow. (Soon to be on a corporate intranet near you?!) If you've been waiting for Google to start acting a little evil, your wait could be over soon -- some theorize that a lot of the tools that Google will create to interact with weblogs might tend to give preference to Blogger weblogs.

Maybe Blogger will even get some real security and stability too, while they're at it.

Combine that with terra lycos' weblog site, AOL's future weblog tools, Salon's weblogs, etc. and you have to wonder... is it soup yet?!
