Looks like Zeldman's A List Apart site will be one of the first Weblogs, Inc. sites.

I got the impression that Zeldman's just using Brian's tool to publish ALA, not that the site will actually fall under Weblogs, Inc's auspices. I'm kind of curious whether Brian's deliberately trying to broaden use of his tool or whether they're competing on the basis of content, as Calcanis has indicated.

Zeldman writes in with an emphatic "no".

Brian has built web publishing tools since it was possible to build web publishing tools. As my partner in Happy Cog Studios, he has built publishing systems for several of our clients. Yet ALA was still put together by hand. That seemed kind of silly. So we collaborated on an ideal version of ALA (I designed the frontend, he designed the backend) which will launch in a few days. We're also collaborating on a traveling road show. But we're not collaborating on Weblogs, Inc., and ALA - a magazine for people who make websites, written by an ever-growing roster of web designers and developers - will not be part of Weblogs, Inc., which is pitched at business people and which, to my understanding, will feature weblogs written by individuals who are subject matter experts.

During the Samuel Johnson days they had big men enjoying small talk; today we have small men enjoying big talk.
