Food for Thought

How much does Six Apart care about LiveJournal anyway?

Blog slayer: Microsoft and the future of SixApart -- "But sure, LiveJournal, and its predominately teen market, is only one of SixApart’s three blog markets, and is arguably the least profitable. Its demise alone would not see the end of SixApart, with MovableType providing some income to the company and TypePad being the major driver of revenue."

They got some bad spam publicity at the end of 2005 too. However, Six Apart CEO Barak Berkowitz says he's putting pressure on legislators to ban blog comment spamming. Six Apart has just raised $12M in venture capital, and is preparing to launch another new blogging tool.
