MT Blog on Google & Blogger

Tuesday, February 18th, 2003 · 1 Comment

I knew I wasn’t the only one thinking, “Is MT next?” following the Google purchase of Blogger. Sure enough, MT developer Mena Trott had this to say:

Six Log: Google, Pyra and Weblogs

I wonder if she wants her software to be acquired by Google or if that would even make sense for either company.

    Google + Blogger = Go_Ogle, the Mother of All Online Dating Sites

    Here’s how I think it will happen:

    First, Google will improve the searchability of the “blogosphere” by making it easy for bloggers to append a file containing information about themselves and their blogger friends. This information will be encoded in an RDF dialect called FOAF (Friend of a Friend).

    Soon after, it will start to dawn on people that the FOAF file is effectively a static online profile, while the associated blog is akin to a living profile (in the ‘living document’ sense).

    One tipping (i.e. inflection) point later, usage of Google by date seekers will grow to an such extent that our (grand)children will read about it in their history texts. Online dating is at 26M users and growing, after all.

    Google will then acquire the best RDF query toolmakers and launch Go_Ogle, the mother of all online dating sites.

    Once Go_Ogle is in place, the possibilities are absolutely mind-googling :^)
