Rodent Regetta has a good summary of the current turbulence in blogging software.

RR also links to Scripty Goddess, who says she doesn’t know where she is going, but she will be changing platforms. She highlights the idea that for a company that writes blogging software, 6A are bad terrible at communicating with their customers.

I think that SG is part of a very important segment of the MT user base. They are people who like playing under the hood with MT. They host their own stuff on servers. Typepad is perfect for people who don’t want to deal with the technology. MT is for the early adopters and for people who are doing the really interesting stuff. Those are the people 6A most want supporting them and got 6A to where they are now. And those are the people most unhappy right now. Not good.
