Business description: Six Apart is the company behind the Movable Type personal publishing system and the TypePad personal publishing service. Six Apart creates tools that enable tens of thousands of individuals, organizations, and corporations to participate in the web's full potential by publishing their ideas on the Internet with simple, yet powerful software and services. The Six Apart corporate weblog provides more information about Six Apart, TypePad and Movable Type. Movable Type is the most powerful and customizable weblog publishing system available today. Movable Type allows users to create attractive, expressive weblogs within a personal publishing system that is infinitely customizable and versatile.

Movable Type will be joined soon by Movable Type Pro, a future release which will include even more powerful features designed to allow advanced users to pursue even the most complex weblog, nanopublishing, and enterprise knowledge management scenarios.
