Well, at least it’s not AOL. Yes, it’s true, Google bought Pyra labs, makers of Blogger. Dan Gillmore got the scoop.

This might be OK; it sounds like Ev is still going to be around, and Google has been quite reasonable about the UseNet archive DejaNews, now known as Google Groups. They’ve enhanced the search interface, and allowed users to control the archive status of their own UseNet posts, or prohibit archiving of their posts. I’ve been worried that AOL would buy Blogger, and run it into the ground. Google might just be the kind of cash influx Blogger has been in need of.
