Blogger & Blogging Tools Long Way To Go!!

I was discussing with someone yesterday about the progress being made by content and portal players and we were relating to the progress being made by various players - I had been and I continue to be involved in various content & portal related initiatives amidst several consulting & IT initiatives - I definitely agree with Doc Searls views that google has not done much to improve bloggers.com capabilities. Doc Searls points out- " Google's acquisition of bloggers looks like the deal was mostly about grabbing up a few million pages for advertising placement".He highlights that just as Microsoft all but quit innovating with its browser after it achieved a monopoly (as Apple later did with Safari), Google all but quit innovating with Blogger -Not because it had a huge market share with Blogger, but because it had a monopoly role in advertising on blogs.There is enormous room for improvement in blogging tools. Based on my experience with blogger -leave aside innovating - blogger has regular problems in publishing - sometimes publishing goes remarkably slow and basic things have been left unattended like - setting right the counter for the no. of items published (not fixed for about five months) and delay in incorporating basic features like trackbacks.
