Here's a nice hack, that works in 'most' modern Web browsers (circa 2004). Andrew Wooldridge uses some fancy JavaScript to spawn a Laszlo blogbox right inside a web page:

Launch GoogleBloxlet

GoogleBloxlet is Andrew's spin on Antun Karlovac's neat little blog widget that enables Google search queries via the GoogleAPI.


Sunrise through the mist at Buena Vista Park

The free Picasa Hello client provides direct photo uploads to Blogger. Interesting feature to add to an online photo-sharing client. Interesting marketing alliance too, announced May 10, 2004. Picasa provides free image hosting for users of free Blogspot accounts, and ostensibly hopes these bloggers will purchase the Picassa photo-organizing software at a sufficient rate to make a profit. Google's Blogger gets to provide yet another free premium feature, on top of built-in commenting and Atom XML feeds - passing along the hosting costs to a hungrier startup. It feels like 1997 all over again. :-)

Epilogue: Google acquires Picassa.
