Internationalized Blogging API

May 14, 2003 Written by Charles Cook

Encouraging to see that the Google/Blogger people are working on a blogging API which doesn't assume that bloggers only use a stunted 7-bit version of their language (via Bill Kearny). This is one of the benefits of the heavyweights moving into the blogging arena. Re Scoble's point about blogging standards, I'd be pleased if Microsoft developed a new standard, assuming the right people worked on it. The existing blogging APIs are so ugly and inadequate.
