All MT all the time?


File this one in the “Blogging world is so incestuous category.” By now unless you are a presidential candidate you have heard about Anil Dash, a former New York hipster who has sold his soul to Silicon Valley and moved to the left coast. He has this little blog, which is kinda popular, and that makes him an A-List blog-dude. On his blog, he has this thing called sidelinks, which actually got the whole sidelink movement started. It is a compilation of lots of funny things, interesting things and even sometimes sad things. So why is it that I see at least one or two mentions of MoveableType/Six Apart every day? I am sure there is a world, and links outside those cubicle walls. My theory is that Anil just is drinking the kool-aid :-) and like all SV folks is becoming tunnel visioned. We want the old Anil back. (PS: Anil still remains one of my favorite peeps in Planet Kalifornia! Also I simply ran out of things to say, so I am picking on AD! :-) Anil no offense meant!)



hey anil i speak for the masses. we all need your random wackiness to get through days. i was just kidding i hope you understand

Anil Dash

Hey, thanks for the mention. :) I know I do write about MT a lot, but I pretty much always have, and the reason I link to our stuff is because I always know about it and sometimes I don’t have time to look for other links.

There are definitely some days when I’ll only have a few links and they’re all Six Apart items, and that probably means that’s all I was working on that day so I didn’t have time to go hunt down other stuff.

For what it’s worth, we’re putting some work into having Six Apart-related stuff appear in the appropriate place on our web sites, so my site can get back to being about random crap. :)
