Movable Type

Movable Type has announced that they are now, and forever will be, open source.

At first, when I heard this, I got nervous. Does this mean that WordPress is on its way out? Could it be that now that Movable Type has this added advantage everyone will jump ship and head on over there?

But then I realized that this is actually good news. It’s created some pretty serious competition for WordPress, which means that we, the consumers, will benefit. WordPress will have to work a little harder to keep our attention.

So I’m looking forward to some pretty amazing things from our leaders over at Automattic!
