Robert Scoble has an interview with Chris Alden, Michael Sippey and David Recordon of Six Apart. Their TypePad platform powers this blog so I was interested to see what they are thinking and planning.
TypePad is great but has not really seen much core development recently. There have been lots of small refinements but things like it’s media features (photo albums* & library) need a big overhaul. It’s a little frustrating that Six Apart’s, newer, free Vox platform is currently better at this than “Pay to host” TypePad!
TypePad is a hosted solution running on 6A’s Movable Type (MT) platform. It was recently updated so maybe more of the good stuff seen in it will turn up in TypePad. I’ve considered using MT but, being lazy, prefer a hosted solution even with it’s limitations. A few of my TypePad wishes from 2006 have appeared but would be good to see more work on the platform.

With who? Six Apart’s CEO, Chris Alden, and VP of Products, Michael Sippey, and Engineer David Recordon.NOTE: Robert has the full one hour interview & six minute highlights edit.
* I’ve considered moving all my photos to Flickr, which can be integrated with TypePad, but then face the nightmare of recreating hundreds of titles & comments from the TypePad albums.
