MovableBlog: Return From America, MT Discussions

Nuance 2.0

June 11, 2003

Sorry for the unannounced hiatus. A trip to Portland, OR, precluded blogging, but did not preclude reading others' blogs.

For the very few who haven't read them yet, A List Apart interviews Anil Dash with respect to TypePad, Dave Winer complains that MT users are flaming him (just now I went to Technorati and found that he is probably referring to, among other things, this, this, and this, although that last post's author does not use MT) and another interview with Anil Dash.

Update 3:10 PM: the interview with Adam Kalsey is worth a read too, as it touches on MT as failed full-fledged CMS (Adam recognizes it is not designed as such), and how Zempt came to be.

Update 3:35 PM: as per the A List Apart interview, Anil says "there are still hundreds of millions of machines and devices that we want to ensure are able to access the TypePad application and, more importantly, the sites that our users create with it". I have no reason to doubt that this means MT and TypePad will soon be a lot more accessible under Lynx.

You came over to Oregon, and you didn't say "Hi" to some of us Oregon bloggers? That wasn't very nice ;)

A few of us are using MT :)


Yeah, yeah, next time. The trip was actually arranged fairly short-notice, which is no excuse, now is it?

Thanks for the heads up on the Oregon Bloggers site. I'm making a trip to visit my friends in Portland a yearly thing. So, how does next year sound?

Sounds good! Give us a heads up when you make it our way and we'll at least tell you what you need to see while your hear. Trust me: The Best Beer and Burgers are in Central Oregon ( and, no matter what those folks in Portland say :)
