Silicon Valley - Dan Gillmor's eJournal - Bloogle's Progress

Silicon Valley - Dan Gillmor's eJournal - Bloogle's Progress "The first order of business for Evan Williams and his team was to upgrade the blog-posting software, and to put the Blogger-hosted weblogs on Google's more reliable server computers. But Williams said the team is also looking hard at the element of the read-write Web that Google does so well -- finding stuff.
So a project is under way to create a superior method to help people find, sort and make better use of the content that all those webloggers are creating. Several tools already exist in this arena, including Daypop and Technorati. Google's interest in this is exciting, to put it mildly. (And I can't help wondering if Google's interest will turn into some more acquisitions...)
In the rumor-debunking category, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said there were no plans to segregate weblog content from the main search engine results. There's been wide speculation about such a move."
