Thanks for the blog, Bill

This from Microsoft Watch and WebProNews:

Basically, MSN is cooking the blogs they host for their own benefit.

MSN Filter appears to be a cross between a traditional Web log, where writers have full editorial control, and a wiki model, embracing user contributions.

Adam Sheppard, lead product manager for MSN Filter, said MSN's model " is essentially Nanopublishing as originally championed by Nick Denton at Gawker Media and Weblogs Inc. Both are great blog networks with their own audiences that they'll continue to be successful with."

I saw the MSN ad for professional bloggers. I guess I should have thought that if they were going to throw money at bloggers, they were doing it for nefarious reasons.
