  1. Blogger is a great service, and thanks for the API.

    But unlucky with promotion this time: Right after the video Blogger went down (and is still down) for nearly 2 days, and our new posts are gone…

    If the posts can be recovered, our confidence will return! We are all human 😉

  2. To make Blogger ready for business:
    1. Possibility to rename URLs (no date in URL!)
    2. Extend post options to provide meta-tags directly (esp. description meta-tag!)
    3. Extend post options to decide if next-previous-buttons are displayed or not
    4. Make the template fully editable, i.e. remove automatic (script) inserts by blogger (e.g. let us remove the body navbar)
    5. Add a breadcrumbs system
    6. Provide a chunk system like modxcms
    Experience: 2 years of Blogger usage.

  3. Gosh I attended Google I/O and am now checking out blogger video. I use wordpress currently but don't know java and python although know php and a bit mysql. This looks promising but heavy knowledge needed to develop. I think what I like is that if you learn GWT you learn how to work all the products of google where as wordpress you just get wordpress. I like the template design part and possibly hook up to Web Purchase store. WordPress has a huge following and a ton of material out there.

  4. Could google create an app for everyone to have a personal bank/account independent of any other bank..completely ours that our pay could be transferred into n we have complete control and access of our money..not the big banks
