I just noticed today that Google has released Picasa 2, photo management software. They have tightly integrated it with their chat/messaging program Hello and with their blog tool Blogger. At first glance I am very impressed with the integration. I may even have to get a Blogger account to see how well that integration works.
The Blogger integration with Hello is through something called the Blogger Bot. It is essentially a contact in your friends list that you send photos to, just like you would with a normal contact. It would really be cool if they would open up this technology to other venders to create custom bots for uploading to sites like Flickr or even a custom site.
