If you visited, you might know that many of Google's services come with a web API. With these APIs, one could 'easily' develop a desktop application or a website based on Google's existing services. Thus, Google acts like a web service provider and developers make use of these powerful services.

The based-on web service programming model might replace OS oriented programming in the near future. The browsers may not replace all applications. However, operating system will become less and less important and services become independent of OSes.

Wordpress to Blogger

I wrote a small Java program to import posts from Wordpress to Blogger using blogger API. Now the program seems OK, but due to the "Word Verification" or Captcha problem, the migration could not be done automatically within one day.

It seemed that Blogger APIs does not support per post captcha currently. And the 50 posts per day limit seemed a little tight.

When posting with emails, I got the following message:
You have exceeded the the allowable number of posts without solving a captcha.
