It's the kind of progress that happens when you wake up the next morning and have to take a shower, so you go to the bathroom, only to discover that this co-op has communal showers, and someone is already in there, and it's a boy. But you have to shower, so off go the clothes and into the shower you go, and this naked boy very politely introduces himself as he's soaping his hair, and he asks, 'What's your name?'An exerpt from Penguin's Progress, which was even funnier with hand gestures when the above writer and I discussed this over lunch today. To include in the next version of Blogger, hand gestures.

Remarkably, we tailored our internal version of Blogger for Google by the end of our fifth week in our new digs. For short 'Blogger in Google' is BIG. A tip for all you smaller web services who get purchased by larger companies, release an internal tool that your co-workers can't live without! Sure, we went from answering tech support for the masses (Blogger Pro, et all) to answering tech support questions in the lunch line but it's been worth it. Our public version of Blogger will benefit from this round the clock scrutiny. All in all it's been a lot of fun, plus I didn't quite make the blogging A-list the first time around, but I have a second shot at work. My internal blog, The Shellen Conspiracy, has certainly seen much more attention than shellen.com in recent months, sorry. :( It's just that I can be a bit more open in my internal blog. I think I'm still finding my balance between what can be blogged here and what I keep as competitive info.
If you want to hear more about BIG, I'm giving the June 10th Keynote: 'Where Weblogs Matter' at the ClickZ Weblog Business Strategies Conference in Boston. If you can't make it to Boston, I'll be speaking about Blogger at the eLearning Forum meeting this Friday morning in Mountain View. Hope to see you there.

[update: Seth says go ahead and download the companion PDF from any old place, like this one. Wouldn't hurt to buy the book either. :) ]

This one won't tell you which flavor of ice cream you would be, it's for science and junk.
