Google gets Blogging

It wasn't always clear that Google knew what it was doing with blogs. But there's good news:

1) Google uses its blog to correct a mistaken impression in the news. (A more cynical person might say to "spin" the news, but it looks to me like Google is being entirely earnest.) (via THG)

2) Turing tests to comment on blogs. Someone's been generating fake comment spam to draw people to their adwords pages. Google put a stop to that. (A more cynical person might note that Google benefited from the spam because it generated money through Google's own adwords program.)

Neither is novel or of great importance, but they are both positive developments given that Google is running our blogging platform.
