I woke up this morning to a pleasant arrival in my inbox – no, not the latest Nigeria scam, instead a communication from “Sixapart”:http://www.sixapart.com/, makers of “Movable Type”:http://www.moveabletype.org. Firstly they informed me that my Personal Edition has been upgraded for free to an Unlimited Personal Edition (so I can now have as many authors as I like), but have also explained that the standard Personal Edition now allows an unlimited number of blogs too (previously you were limited to five authors).
When the original licensing structure was announced many bloggers got a “little histerical”:http://diveintomark.org/archives/2004/05/14/freedom-0 – I instead decided to wait it out and see how Six Apart dealt with the criticism. Six Apart listened, reacted, and the net result is that the new license scheme was to my liking. I paid for a license an am very happy with it. The fact that they’ve further rewarded me for my support is icing on an already quite nice cake.
