Interesting interview, nice to hear what is going on with MT and TP.

I also just wanted to comment that not everybody who chooses TypePad over Moveable Type does so because they are technically challenged. I am a web-developer but I do mainly Microsoft technologies (ASP.NET, MSSQL etc.) and frankly was not interested in hosting a non-MS tech system such as MT. But I liked what MT could do and when TP came out I realised here was MT already hosted for me. You can do a lot with TP and the Pro account.

It is a bit strange and sad that “real bloggers” treat TypePad as a lepper. It’s great IMO.

Nice interview, now if you’d only spell MT’s name as “Movable” instead of “Moveable”.

A very insightful interview. Having used MovableType for almost two years, I can’t thank Ben and Mena enough for their cool content manager. Here’s to years of greatness at Six Apart!

Mike: I believe that was an error on the author’s part but I am not sure. The editorial team has fixed the error.

Another minor correction. It’s Andre Torrez not Torres. – good times
