It's New Blogger,
launched today at 3pm, with a retooled interface, more rounded corners, single entry archives, comments, user profiles
, more template tags, mail-to-blog, knowledge
, and more. (Farewell, good ol' black.
We'll miss you.)

, the blogging software of choice (well, for a lot of us), have launched a new user-friendly service on their own servers, called TypePad
the press release). Is this a first direct hit at Blogger, a service they have denied gunning for, in light of Google's move? Will it work? My vote: Hell yes. MovableType have not put a foot wrong yet, and now they've got Anil Dash
on board, the lucky tyke...

15 months after the first waves
, Blogging seems to prove so popular among young Iranian boys and girls that now the number of Persian (or Farsi) weblogs has jumped to more than 9,000. Almost half of them are using Blogger.com
's free service and other half are using a similar but more Persian-friendly online application, created by Iranian programmers, called Persianblog.com
. Tomorrow, they are gathering in a big conference hall in Tehran to meet other colleagues and bloggers and to share what they've experienced during their lovely days of a rare thing in Iranian history: absolute freedom of expression

Blogger sets up special search page.
It displays posts mentioning "World Trade" or "terrorist." It's really something. It starts right at the very beginning. From the Blogger front page:
"'The need to connect is intense,' said Donna Hoffman, a professor who studies the Web and Web commerce at Vanderbilt University. 'While the network TV stations blather, the Internet carries the news and connects the masses in a true interactive sob.'" Indeed. Today was the most active posting day on Blogger ever—by over 22 percent.

The Blogger Purity Test - Phase One
"Stage One is a call for questions. Go to the site (http://pure.fury.com) and submit the questions that you think should be asked of webloggers. You can also read the most recent submissions from other bloggers and readers.
The site will be open for submissions until August 15th, when a few of us will hide away and pick out the best 200 or so questions and present the test survey for the month of September.
Then, it's tallying up the responses and seeing what the state-of-the-blogunion is for 2001.

For what it's worth, the notably talented Noah Grey
has just recently released a new version of his weblogging software GreyMatter. I've been using GreyMatter for my personal weblog for a few weeks now: anyone feeling frustrated with server problems over at Blogger
or just wishing for a little more control over their content might want to check it out. Let me tell you, it's a control-freak's dream program. And especially nice, it runs using Perl cgis on your own server, so there shouldn't ever be any accessibility problems. Noah is a great guy and really deserves more recognition for the wonderful job he's done on GreyMatter. Just thought I'd mention...

LiveJournal's "Paid Accounts" model
might be the route that Pyra wants to take with Blogger. I don't know much about LiveJournal's features as compared with Blogger, but they certainly have thought out their revenue model. Does anyone know anything about LiveJournal?

Say the good folks at Pyra, as Blogger goes to telethon mode and asks for New Server donations. And they really suckered me in, too, because sufficient donations yield free stickers

put up a link to the New Yorker article
that mentions himself, Meg, Pyra, EV, etc. It also mentions MetaFilter and myself. I find this funny in a way, all of of these people that never would have known anything about each other are all interconnected. Why? Because Ev and Meg started Pyra. Because I read an article about the original Pyra app. Which led me to Blogger. Which led to Ev, Meg, Pb, MetaFilter... whcih led to Kottke, Haughey, etc. Ahhh the good old days

Personal ones. Who has them, who reads them? Purely out of interest - personal not community ones. Do you have one? You don't have to tell us the address. Why do you have one? Does your friend have one? Do you read it? Have you ever thought about making one?
And lastly, do you find them interesting?

Pyra - a company built to flip?
Sippey makes the most important statement and one that I have posted here before...
Both Blogger, and Pyra are great products but where is the BUSINESS MODEL.
Matt do not censor this please... it is a very valid point whether you like it or not...

Blogger: The relaunch verdict?
Blogger.com relauched their site with a funky new look and still more kewl features, do they still rock?
I had teething troubles in getting the remote editing to work. But after all that, it now works and in my opinion of course Blogger still rocks
