Just the facts, ma’am

I hadn’t weighed in on the whole Movable Type licensing controversy, because I figured there were enough people like Les who were publicly making the case that the licensing structure for version 3.0 was very flawed from the customer’s standpoint (even with the recent clarifications). Plus, I don’t see any reason to move up to 3.0 any time soon, and if I really, really had to, I could limit myself to the 3 blogs, 1 author limit of the free version.

Now, Six Apart is asking us to tell them how we are using the software, so they will understand how they could have been so far off the mark. After all, they supposedly asked 2500 bloggers about it, and 85-percent of them only had 1 blog. So, how do we in the “minority” use the tool?

For my part, I have the main blog, 1 for each kid (3 blogs and 3 authors), and 1 for the baseball league. I also like to use it for special projects. So, the Banned Books Project and What’s Not to Like? are both blogs. A total of 6 blogs.

There you go. My contribution to your market analysis. Hope it makes a difference.

    I like the “those who have taken the time to send a TrackBack to our previous posts” wording. I guess she forgot that MT includes auto-trackback discovery?

    Does this make me the Official Solonor’s Ink Well Policy Spokesperson? 🙂
