Loose Wires: One out of beta, dozens to go...
  • So, the new version of Blogger is finally out of beta! Yippee! But what about the dozens of other products, still stuck either in beta — even mainstays like Gmail — or in Google Labs? Just a few weeks ago, Valleywag readers said Joga Bonito will be the next to go. [BloggerBuzz]
  • Michael Arrington is disappointed in the Wall Street Journal's "attack on blogs." Says the WSJ: "The blogs are not as significant as their self-endeared curators would like to think. Journalism requires journalists, who are at least fitfully confronting the digital age. The bloggers, for their part, produce minimal reportage. Instead, they ride along with the MSM like remora fish on the bellies of sharks, picking at the scraps." Ouch! [Crunchnotes]
  • The most popular topics on Reddit? Politics and Internet & PC, apparently. [StatisticsFreak]
  • Web 2.0 comes to the Catholic Church! Boston's Cardinal Sean O'Malley to start podcasting. [SFGate]
