It's got the same significance as or have.


The server is just set up so as to work with any subdomain, for Christ's sake.

WHAT IS THE INTENSE FASCINATION WITH PYRA? sure, I was wondering what frosci was, too, (it's appearing in my referrers and is listed on but doesn't it seem like everything and anything that blogger does is reported here with awe and bated breath?

did everyone else here got stock options in pyra while I snoozed?

(I just keep sitting around over here next to my computer, waiting for that email from ev detailing the key role I'm going to be playing in the blogger empire. I think I'm well suited to be their top government liason, but I've got the feeling it's going to be "cheese hostess"....)

No no no, you've got it all wrong. The title is "cheese wench." Get with the program!

I think the intense fascination with Pyra is fairly obvious.

They're a very cool company, who made it very easy for people to express themselves. That alone evokes admiration.

Also, Pyra's continually expanding Blogger, so people want to know what the Next Big Pyra Thing is so they can get a jump on it. Internet Cool is often attributed to early adopters.

And 92.4% of the MetaFilter members with their own websites use Blogger (when I get off my butt, I'll make it 92.5%), and, of course, that's where mathowie's day job is. Reason enough for Pyra Labs to be our collective "pet dot-com". If you want to cover somebody else's company as closely, you're free to post topics (within the restrictions against self-blogging).

"Well, not *all* of us use blogger", he said, firmly resisting the urge to insert a gratuitous self-link.

You're part of the 7.6, baylink. Wendell left room for you, don't worry. :-)
