The makers of Typepad and Moveable Type have long been regarded as the professionals blogger tool. There are copious amount of good, free, open source blogging tools available which is fine for a great many purposes. However, the quality and support from a nominal license fee ensures that those wishing to do a professional looking and operating blog have a source. Ran across someone who thinks highly of the company, as well as the technology on a blog on ventureblog.com.
Of course, there’s more to Six Apart than powerful software. As elegant as I think both Movable Type and TypePad are, to quote myself again, “it’s the people, stupid!” The Six Apart team is phenomenal and getting better every week. I don’t invest in products or ideas or business models.
Note: The blogger has invested in the company… 🙂
