Dave Pollard on Blog Functionality

Dave Pollard has put together his cut at what blogging tools ought to be able to do from an average user perspective. While Dave is anything but an average blogger, this is an interesting line of thought.

Everyone has their own specifications for what they’d like blogs to do. Advanced users, comfortable with the technology and able to tweak their blogs to do some amazing (and some silly) things, are quickly leaving the rest of us behind, and there are millions of others who took a quick try at blogging, threw up their hands, and gave up.

This article is an attempt to create a scorecard of what blogs can and cannot presently do, and what they should be able to do. The objective is to spec out a blogging tool that is better (more useful), faster and simpler, at next to no cost. [How to Save the World]
