Blog from WORD

Looks like Blogger, current host of this humble blog, has released a plugin for Microsoft Word that lets you post and edit straight from the application!  Nice!  No more trying to compose in the tiny blogger text window.  
This is some very nice integration and it’s really the kind of synergy that open api’s allow.  Word is a very nice application for writing in, and why shouldn’t you be using something made for writing?  I like the idea that I might write a post in Word and publish it from there, then post to my blog, someone subscribes from the feed and they may read it in their email client or some feed reader.  All of this with no webbrowser involved.  This is what’s nice about the future today.
