TypePad Launches

SixApart, the folks behind the terrific Movable Type weblog software (the package that runs this site), have just made their public launch of TypePad, their new hosted service. TypePad is a sort of Movable Type Plus — all the creamy goodness of Movable Type, with some extra features, and minus the need to manage a server yourself (they do all the software hosting, you just create an account and go). This is a great opportunity for any of you considering joining blogspace to get your feet wet. Congrats to Ben, Mena, and the rest of the SixApart crew on reaching this milestone!
