Google buys Pyra Labs (Blogger)

Dan Gillmor:

“Google, which runs the Web’s premier search site, has purchased Pyra Labs, a San Francisco company that created some of the earliest technology for writing weblogs, the increasingly popular personal and opinion journals.”

Wow, that’s pretty huge. It brings up all sorts of questions. I’m starting to be afraid of Google — that maybe we start relying on them too much, but it’ll sure be interesting to see what they do to improve Blogger. This is certainly good news for them, and well deserved.
