The good news broke this morning, via an e-mail from Jeff Veen and then "an announcement":http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2006/02/here-comes-measure-map.html on the official Google blog. "Measure Map":http://measuremap.com is now part of the G empire.
The news is a bit surprising to me, because Measure Map is a very young service, unlike "Urchin.":http://www.urchin.com/ But it's quick, simple, blog centric, and doing many things right. How (or if) it will be combined with Urchin is anybody's guess.
On a side note, according to Measure Map the number of visitors to ichris.ws was an all-time low on Valentine's day. Only 85 unique visitors. The number reflects very well on _you,_ my readers. :)
