How Blogger Begat the Push-Button Publishing Revolution

This Neat Flowchart from over at Wired didn't seem like enough for a FPP but it's really interesting to see what all the Pyra Labs people have done since 1998, including starting things like Metafilter. "At the close of 1998, there were 23 known weblogs on the Internet. A year later there were tens of thousands. What changed? Pyra Labs launched Blogger, the online tool that gave push-button publishing to the people. It was a revolutionary web product made by a revolutionary web of people who went on to build much of the modern net. Here’s how Pyra propagated."

Recrutiing bloggers as mentors

Recruiting bloggers? I am working on a youth blogging project and I want to ask MeFi bloggers if anyone is interested in being a one-week mentor. All they have to do is post a blog entry on a specific topic (i.e. heroes or community service) early in the week and comment on the kids' blogs throughout the week.

Where would be a good place on MeFi to post this?

giving credit where credit is due

What's the etiquette for VIA if you're emailed a link by a blogger, but that link's not actually on their blog? Should one just not provide a VIA or should you link to the blog anyway to give credit where it's due?

Weblog Nation

Wow! MetaFilter's Nikolai Nolan has put up a terrific web site called Weblog Nation that presents the weblogging dynamic and community in a fresh, uncomplicated way. MetaFilter gets royal treatment, of course - which is only fair. But the whole presentation is truly impressive, almost luxurious. The question is "Does it present too rosy a picture?". My own answer would definitely be no. We need uplifting stuff like this more than ever.

What exactly is it that just happened to Blogger?

What exactly is it that just happened to Blogger? I saw hints that there had been some sort of security breach, and now everything is inaccessible. (And the Blogspot server is outright offline as I write this.) There was some sort of password break?

Mac bloggers ahoy

I don't use blogger, so I don't know if this functionality exists elsewhere, but this looks pretty cool for blogger users on Mac OS 10.1.

Navel gazing: most popular

Some navel gazing (hmmmm, perty):

As far as I can tell, Blogger is the most popular weblog app, Metafilter the most popular weblog, and Jason Kottke the most popular weblogger.

The end of free

Ev Williams of Blogger's new (well new to me, anyway) project is The End of Free

What does this mean for Blogger? How will it "transition from free to fee and beyond"? What about other weblog software, is there anything you'd pay for?

Blogger sells ad space

Blogger sells ad space. Don't panic. It's only the last ditch cry of the "free web".

An actual porn site; found

Browsing the recently updated list of sites on Blogger, as I occasionally do, I noticed this site on the list. I was expecting a girl with a sarcastic take on life, or a similar cliché; instead, I got an actual porn site. (With plenty of html and blogger tag errors.) Is this simply the natural progression of things, or something dastardly and the... erm... artificial progression of things?

Blogger is experiencing DNS problems at the moment

I didn't think this was important enough to post on the main MeFi page, but thought I'd pass it along here...

According to evhead.com, Blogger is experiencing DNS problems at the moment. If you just can't live without it, try going to http://64.41.146.214/.

Tomorrow's New York Times today

Tomorrow's New York Times today:

By DAVID F. GALLAGHER
c.2001 New York Times News Service

The Trellix Corp., which lets clients like About.com provide site-building tools and Web server space to their users, will announce Monday that it has licensed Pyra's Blogger technology for an undisclosed sum.
...
The free Blogger service brought Pyra plenty of attention and great press, but plans to introduce a paid version never materialized, and late last year Pyra, based in San Francisco, laid off all but one full-time employee, Evan Williams, a company co-founder. The meltdown was documented in painful detail on the personal Web logs of Pyra's staff, and Blogger fans feared the service would soon vanish.

"I've been struggling to figure out the business part,’" Williams said, adding that the agreement with Trellix would keep Blogger alive. He plans to help Trellix package Blogger functions with its other site-building tools, bringing the Web log concept to a wider audience.
...
Dan Bricklin, the founder and chief technical officer of Trellix and a PC industry veteran, said he was "a devout believer in the power of blogging for self-expression," and that he "didn’t want Blogger to go under."

Blogger turns off remember me

Let's give Blogger a nod for turning off the 'remember me' feature until Microsoft fixes its cookie problems.

Now if they'd just get FTP working with my server (-:
