I don’t want to weaken the story; the essence is true. But I have to defend my coder roots a little: I *did* initially code Blogger, actually (along with Paul Bausch). But it was in ASP on Windows Server 😬. It was later rewritten in Java (by Matt Hamer) and moved to Linux servers, neither of which I had any familiarity with. So I then had to maintain and build upon the service as I learned. So, yeah. Good times.
