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."

I'm extremely PISSED

For the record - I'm extremely PISSED that BloggerPro has been down for over 12 hours now without warning. It didn't bother me when I was a freeloader, but now that I've payed for it am I alone in wanting a little bit more than I'm getting from Pyra?

I just want needed to vent...

he's corralling the kittens

Ha: "Matt Haughey whips scripts and pushes pixels at Pyra Labs. When he's not being cheeky on his personal site, he's corralling the kittens on his community one.

Blogger sells ad space

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

Tomorrow's New York Times today

Tomorrow's New York Times today:

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."

Air your dirty laundry here?

Mr. Kottke and Ms. Hourihan, if you have something to say, just say it.

can they withstand a business model test?

While both deepleap and pyra are interesting applications can they withstand a business model test? I don't think so... From what I've heard, deepleap is scampering for investors but how do they plan on making money? Also the folks at pyra created the famous blogger but have yet to make any money? I ask the weblog community, especially Matt, does this make sense? While these web pioneers may get the web, and the people the met at sxsw get the web, I think they are missing a crucial factor... you must have a business model and not just a functional and useful application. What do you think?
