Is Mena Trott on drugs?

February 27, 2006

I promised I wouldn’t attack Mena in the future, so I’m not, saying someone is on drugs is Australian for saying something really stupid, bizarre, etc….

This from Business Week:
” think blog tools can get easier to use. Putting together a blog should be as easy as sending an e-mail. I foresee the next versions of blog tools as focusing less on features that appeal to early adopters. They’ll be easier for people to incorporate more media and maybe mobile capabilities. This will be important, because many more mainstream users will come to blogging. I believe the interest in blogging is just starting.”

Outside of Image Management, blogging is as easy as sending an email. Indeed I can post to a WordPress blog using email! I’m not sure if there is an equivalent in SixApart products, but I’d be surprised if there wasn’t. As for extras, has she not tried MSN Spaces or MySpace out? there isn’t a huge number of features here. Indeed I would argue that that we need more features in blogware not less. As the blogosphere matures users are and will be expecting to do more, not less, unless of course she counts the 200 million odd bloggers as “early adopters” 🙂
