A sticker on my laptop, back in 2010. I’d love a 2022 version of this (although I doubt it would come from big-in-Japan Six Apart these days…)

A “We Love Blog” sticker from Six Apart in 2010.

@MitchW Still exists but as a Japanese company, still selling Movable Type, mainly as a corporate CMS.

@adders I wonder if any PHP devs work with 6A these days. I have a legacy $140 all-you-can spawn account. Easy to spin up brochure sites witb static HTML.

@adders I received several password reset emails on my ancient, personal MT account last year. I was surprised to learn that the service is still around.

@topgold I think MT was Perl, not PHP…

@adders You're right! I taught CGI scripts and MT's Perl in one of our earliest academic courses and then pivoted to PHP around the time WordPress was a year old.

@topgold I spent far too long thinking about them in the late 2000s. From 2006 to 2011 I product managed a huge MT install running dozens of B2B magazine blogs…

@adders I'm amazed at the stickiness that apps like Instagram now have on the university students of 2022 compared to the deep threaded experience their predecessors enjoyed inside bulletin boards or listservs. A compelling mobile UX makes a big impact.
