Widgetize your Blog
Six Apart (TypePad / Moveable Type) are offering a suite of easily installed additional sidebar content tools for your blog. Pretty cool. This "official" inclusion of third-party services is a great addition to the service, and perhaps a pointer for possibilities w/ Blogger 2.0?

See Blogspotting, Message, Blog Herald and others....

Oh no, John - you uttered the words "Typepad/Moveable Type" on the same day I uttered the words "WordPress" -- a sure sign of the apocalypse! :)

Blogger 2.0? When? Where? What?

If... but c'mon, it's got to be soon, right?

@john: I have been waiting (patiently) for something to come out of blogger. Those little things like Blogs of Note and Blog of the Day don't cut it for me.

How about some functional changes in the way we post? :-)

I reckon Blogger's given up. All the innovations are happening elsewhere, eg templates, features, add-ons etc.

For all intents and purposes, they're now just a big disk with a fat pipe hosting a stagnant, slightly-buggy web app.

Why try hard when your parent company's price-to-earnings ratio is like, a gazillion? (I'm worried that delicious is asking itself the same question ...)

I've just put up a post giving you guys some major credit for your link tags for Blogger which I rewrote to work in Wordpress without a plugin. I haven't seen it done anywhere else in quite the same way. Thought you might be interested!

John hi,How hopeful are you to see a new revitalized Blogger soon?
I am opptimistic but a little impatient.I wish to see the daylight, ie a new blogger with simplified categories and many more hacks soon.
