In case you are wondering, "D" is my husband -- Dave Liu! As you've probably noticed, I don't update this blog often but I may post more as I've linked this to my Google+ account.

All the really spiffy weblogs out there are powered by Movable Type. I've been itching to give it a shot myself, but there was something in their FAQ about "If you have never installed a CGI program, the Movable Type installation process can be intimidating..." that stopped me in my tracks.

I was tooling around Mena Trott's website (got there by accident because I was looking for a way to implement the cool full-scale calendars for archive posts in Blogger), when I noticed a post about TypePad. It appears that Six Apart Ltd., the creator of Movable Type, has closed their Series A financing that was lead by a Japanese frim called Neoteny Co. Ltd. Neoteny's website has a blog for reporting information like recent news. Very cool.

I've already signed up for TypePad newsletters, and it looks like they will initially offer only a paid service, i.e., no free version. I'd love to try it out, but I'm only two months into my $35 annual Blogger Pro paid subscription. Very tempting tho...
