Developers who don’t demand that everything be incredibly useful and not at all fun should appreciate a new move on Google’s part. From now on, the Android Developers Blog should play home to some interesting stories, not just fact-filled updates.
Tim Bray, who’s relatively new at Google and is now editor of the blog, wrote yesterday, “I’m going to track down the people who actually do the creative Android-building work and get them to tell their own stories. I will bend over backward to make sure the articles have the voices of the people who write them.”
Bray then explained, “We will go on being a source for hard opinion-free just-the-facts Android news. But I’d like to surround each burst of that with a cluster of reportage about what it means and how we think it will affect the Android communities.”
Enjoy the additional insights this change should bring.
