Google Buys Pyra

Wow!! Big news in the blogging world today (well, it actually happened on Thursday). Google, has bought Pyra labs, the maker of the famous Blogger software.

Not sure how this will play out, but I assume that it will be like when Yahoo took over Geocities a few years back, or when Google took over the Deja News archives. Also, I guess that Google will come up with some sort of backend stuff that will automatically generate similar weblog postings that appear on the Blogspot server (soon to be the Google server), like they do with Google News.

I am sure that more news (and information about how this will effect Blogger users) will appear as the news spreads. We live in exciting times.

This story is being slashdotted, big time!!
