6Ahoo

{Yahoo offers Movable Type for bloggers } – “Yahoo Inc. and Six Apart Ltd., creator of Movable Type — the most popular software used to create professional blogs — said on Sunday Yahoo will be the preferred supplier of Movable Type for small businesses.”

In a way, I think we all knew this would happen. Google has Blogger and Yahoo, picking up the “cool” companies with their purchased of Flickr and Del.icio.us, needed blog software that was more than their 360 product. While it’s not a purchase of 6A, smart on 6A’s part, it’s really an endorsement of their products in a HUGE way. Although, a Yahoo/6A purchase has been speculated since earlier this year .
