The revolution will be ajaxified

I was delightfully surprised when I visited Blogger today without a cookie and saw a new ajaxy recently updated scroller on the front page. Here’s a 1.2Mb AVI file of it in action.

Just to reiterate a point I made early this year, there was a version of the blogger.com homepage that did exactly this, in early 2001, so I was extra pleased to finally see something like it in public today. I’ve replayed 2001 in my mind over and over again, wondering what the web developer world would be like today if KnowNow‘s stuff was unleashed on the blogosphere back then.
