"It's the beginning of the end of free at Blogger. I've just been interviewing Evan Williams, brains behind Blogger.com, in his local cafe in San Francisco. I'd dragged him away from development of Blogger's first premium service: fast-responding servers.
Blogger has been under great strain since October, when the US terrorist attacks prompted a surge in people wanting to create their own weblogs. Now Evan plans to start building up a premium service: in the next few hours, he'll launch a $30-a-year membership scheme, which will offer faster and more reliable service. The free Blogger will remain, but other - quite compelling - premium services will be rolled out quick-fire after that."
