Google Buys Blogger

Blogger, the software that powers the site you are now reading has been bought by Google. It couldn't have been soon enough. While Evan Williams, Blogger's founder, has done a great job creating weblog software for the masses, the road has not been without its potholes. I hope this buyout infuses some much needed cash and development into the platform.

Blogger is weblog software that allows you to easily publish a website and to link to other bloggers. It has made for some very economically viable operations such as Gawker and Gizmodo. It will be very interesting to see how the Google/Blogger relationship transforms the blogoshpere.

More from Google Village and Executive Summary and Nick Denton and Jason Kottke.

This is one of those moments in time that we will look back on and say, "Wow, that was the start of it all."
