Six Apart Announces “TypePad”

Yesterday, Ben and Mena Trott, creators of MovableType and principals of Six Apart, announced TypePad, a new centralized/hosted blogging tool, based on MovableType and its related technology/APIs.

The blogging community is moving onward and upward — with Google’s high-profile purchase of Blogger, and now this next move by Six Apart (Ben and Mena have a few more items up their sleeves for the coming months with regards to MovableType Pro), blogging is taking on a stronger stance in the web community at large. It’s not just for geeks any more (OK, so it hasn’t been “just for geeks” for a while now, but it sounded good).

Also, MovableType fans everywhere will no longer be able to refer simply to “Ben and Mena”, since Six Apart has officially hired their first employee: Anil Dash. From now on (until the next employee, that is) it’s “Ben, Mena and Anil.”

Congrats you guys! Keep up the good work!
