: Ev announces that Google is beta-testing the ability for users to create their own groups (fighting Yahoo on another front).

I just went in and created a group for the nascent Citizens Media Association hatched at Bloggercon. Nothing there so go say things…

  • Jeff,
    What is the purpose of the Google Group? It seems antithetical to use this to hold a discussion. I just assumed being bloggers we would do it through posts and trackback? I’m not criticising just curious the differences in type of dialog you are anticipating?

    Interesting. I don’t think you can excerpt stuff from the googlegroup in your blog.
    “Google authorizes you to view and download a single copy of the Materials solely for your personal, non-commercial use. You may not sell or modify the Materials or reproduce, display, publicly perform, distribute, or otherwise use the Materials in any way for any public or commercial purpose without the written permission of Google.”
    Or did I just violate the agreement by excerpting the condition here?
