The Secret Agency

Maybe you know the story of how Blogger was born out of a small company called Pyra Labs. It wasn’t the first or only Pyra product. Google Reader was birthed out of Google’s Labs program. Twitter out from under the wings of Obvious. I’ve always been a fan of this idea of incubating new ideas in some sort of formal space. I’m announcing the creation of The Secret Agency today as a similar sort of experiment in cooking up new ideas. There isn’t much other than our logo on the site today but there will be more in time. For now our plans are on a need to know basis. ;)

ps: Congratulations to the Google Reader team on launching search in Reader today. It’s not easy to implement search over one’s individual items, just ask the Gmail team. Nice work!
