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.
spurred on by my post yesterday, I have finally licenced the content of mikel.org under a Creative Commons Canada by-nc-sa license. It was really just inertia that kept me from doing it before, or at least since November 2004 when Canadian CC licences were first made available.
Wish list? Movable Type makes it easy to create a US license right in the site preferences. Frankly, though, I think it’s obnoxious that Six Apart has a US-centric feature embedded in their software when International versions do in fact exist. I also wish the Creative Commons Canada people had: a) made it easier to download the appropriate graphic and store it locally (with instructions for those who don’t know how); and, b) I wish they’d included size attributes in the image tag itself. Small details, but important ones.
Six Apart has bought LiveJournal. Here’s the Mena’s Corner about the whole thing. I’m impressed by how Six Apart seems to be developing as a company. From the licensing changes to this, they really seem to be learning.
this week as Six Apart has taken Series B Funding to the tune of $10M from August Capital.
