SixApart to buy LiveJournal?
Obviously this is all in the rumor mill right now, but the rumor is that SixApart, the company that makes MovableType (the software that powers this site), is looking to buy out LiveJournal. Jeff asks some good questions like what it means for TypePad, the LiveJournal open source code, etc... . ? Matt thinks SixApart is going after LJ for its engineers, but the revenue certainly wouldn't hurt. Danah brings up some good points about the cultural divide between MT and LJ users. Heck, I've even mentioned some local users before.
Obviously this is all rumor, but do take into account what happened last time SixApart bought a blog hosting service.
