I just spent a delightful hour using the online dashboard for WordPress.
I changed the theme of my blog and tossed out a few widgets from the sidebar that were no longer relevant. It was so easy and responsive, even on my dialup connection.
I guess one of the reasons that I liked the experience so much was that I was working with such an attractive interface.
Google could learn a thing or two from WordPress in this respect; I know that Google like to keep things simple, but there’s simple, and then there’s just plain drab.
