Want to Learn Something Cool?

If you've been following Google's new offering, still in Beta, of Blogger.com, you may already have found "Want to Learn Something Cool?" But just in case, it's worth a quick post here.

Want to Learn Something Cool is, for the moment, a mirror of Want to Know Something Cool. That is, the posts are identical, though the design is a bit different. Why two blogs, you wonder? Well, the new version that's still in Beta offers post tagging-- a handy way to throw a few keywords against each post, theoretically making it easier to find the posts of most relevance to a given reader.

So while it's in Beta, we're running Want to Learn Something Cool over there, with the same posts that appear here, where you've (hopefully) set your bookmark. Eventually, the post tagging option will find its' way from Beta to general release, and theoretically we won't need two blogs anymore. But for now, we're running parallel blogs to try out the new toolsets from Google. This is just a heads-up that Learn Something Cool is out there; we'll still publish here for the foreseeable future. If you check it out and find you have a preference, by all means, post a comment to either place and let us know what you like (or don't) about the new blog. Thanks for reading!
