The hullabaloo surrounding the blog has obscured what it is. It’s not complex—it’s simply a Web site that lets its owner (and anyone to whom that owner gives permission) post comments, links to other Web sites and documents, all without being proficient in HTML. Imagine opening a browser window and being able to access e-mail, presentations and spreadsheets relating to a project, all in one place. Like any other Web site, it can be password-protected.
