How to keep blogs from scaring the hell out of people. I guess the question for people trying to sell blog services to companies is whether they’re out to impress their client or actually sell something.
is still a fascinating subject, though if anything the newspapers appear to be moving even further away from “getting it” than ever.

Six Apart is pumping up its Blogging Solutions for Business. For some time now large-scale integration issues have been handled (and it seems pretty well) by a growing and capable group of consultants and developers. While it’s certainly great news that Six Apart is adding features that will make integration in corporate environments easier, I hope they don’t cut the developers’ grass in the process. I highly doubt they would do that – after some missteps early on, Six Apart seems pretty good about both improving their service while also energizing and nurturing the developer community.
