Greg Pierce points out that Conversant has an XML-RPC interface that predates Blogger's. Let's give credit where credit is due. There's also a fantastic XML-RPC spell checker, and O'Reilly's Meerkat. What makes Blogger unique is that it's quickly driving developer and user adoption of XML-RPC. It's as close to a killer app as we're likely to get. There's already Python glue and Perl glue that connects with Blogger. There will be all kinds of connections. We'll continue to promote all web apps that support XML-RPC, and celebrate them, but Blogger getting on board is a BFD in XML-RPC-land.
