I haven't even been blogging, well coblogging, for a week yet I'm ready to go out on a limb and make a bold prediction. A prediction about the very future of Internet Explorer and the blogging phenomenon, no less! (I guess I have less built up blogging goodwill to lose than The W. Monk who never makes predictions, although he does go out on limbs. All the time).

Grand prediction (drumroll please): Internet Explorer will soon contain an integrated blogging feature.

After all, Microsoft just announced that the next version of IE will squish popup ads like bugs. Since Google has bought blogger.com and offers a nice popup killer too adding blogging to IE seems like a natural progression to me. The computer industry has been looking for a new killer app for years now with no luck. This is probably the best they will be able to come up with. The only remaining question is whether Microsoft will need to buy Movable Type to complete its plans to rule the world?

You heard it here first. (And you thought The Monk was the nerdy one here at Spitbull. Think again.)
