Signs of life at Six Apart again. About fricking time...the silence from all these weblog companies (*cough* Kinja *cough*) is weird and stupid.

"Weird and stupid" -- amen. Several times over the last year I've been struck by the irony of such silence from companies that make sharing news and information so easy...regardless: this is a great start.

I heard the open-source blogging thing might take off. Complete transparancy and all.

Mayhaps the weblog companies are too busy making connections on blogster or publishsterkutin or whatever new layer of the onion is passing for being social these days.

Can anyone recommend a blog about publishing blogs that let me publish?

Is blog the new Push?

Nothing is the new push. It was a bad idea that just needs to die.

Use blogging to show the company's identity? It is interesting this is something Six Apart did not initially do. Does this say something about corporate blogging (vs. personal blogging)?

I don't believe kinja is really a company. I think of it more as a logo.

Oh, but what a logo! Honeycomb. Helvetica. Black. Orange. Implicit bees. Implicit ninjas.

I break out in hives just contemplating it.

There's an article on corporate blogging in this month's Fast Company, with a few online extras as well.

There isn't much value in blogging except for spreading paranoia and propaganda. All the top-weighed blogs in all these blog-rating sites are involved in amplifying their propaganda and spreading paranoia. No consumer goods company in good standing wants to be part of either.

Can someone explain that post to me? Either it's late, or it didn't say much.

It was propaganda. What do you expect?
