A journal of questionable quality

and, then came TypePad

Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water - Zoetrope the Typepad blog arrives!

Trying to work out what all the drama that Movable Type has generated by going to a 'paid version', thus alienating thousands who think they should get everything for free, I stumbled on their 'low brow' service - Type Pad.

Now we have a 90 day trial of the thing to see what it is actually like.

Given that so many designers are using Movable Type for quick publishing, it seems worth the investigation.

Go to http://zoetrope.typepad.com/zoetrope/ to see Six Apart's equivelent of what you're looking at here.

Am I impressed? I'm getting impressed, in as much as it could be a cheap publishing solution for people.. that was the bit that passed me by the last time I investigated these things, now I'm getting to see what makes the whole thing tick.

Still thinking, still wondering.
