The Censor Blog

As has been widely reported, Microsoft has launched their blogging tool. The move brings up a few interesting questions:

1. Why has Yahoo! been so slow to get on the blogging bandwagon. Even after Google bought Blogger, there was no sign of interest in the space from the folks at Yahoo.

2. Why did Microsoft choose to build instead of buy when it came to blogging and will the other bigs follow suit?

3. Could there be anything less cool than blogging on MSN?

Meanwhile, the gang over at BoingBoing figured out that there are a lot of bad words that MSN bloggers are not allowed to use. Limited the expression of bloggers is like telling someone they can swim as long as they don’t get wet.

Concentration is important!
