Google Blog takeover

What happens when Google accidentally deletes its own official blog, and some 19-year old kid snatches the googleblog.blogspot.com domain?

Read the entire story as it unfolded last night, complete with screenshots and all the "Google Blog hacked!" hysteria, over at Googlist.

Interesting comment at the end:

Thinking about what happened tonight, it is both humble and daring of Google to use its rather unsophisticated blogging tool to write one of the tech industry's most important blogs. But then, it would be ludicrous if they used a beefed up installation of say, WordPress, wouldn't it?
