Wow: TypePad

The Trott family's company Six Apart (creators of wildly popular Movable Type) have announced TypePad - taking on Blogger.com in the market for hosted weblogs. Ben Hammersley has the scoop: The Guardian: Battle of the blog builders:

Technically, Typepad has embraced all the new things that have appeared or been requested in the blogging world in the past year. There is a built-in photo album creation tool, for instance, as well as a built-in Blogroll - a list of all your favourite sites, or lists of books and music you are reading and listening to.

The standout feature is the template maker. Users can design their blog without knowing, or seeing, any HTML code whatsoever and with a very great range of control.

Additional key players: First employee: Anil Dash, main investor: Joi Ito (via his Japanese Venture Capital firm Neoteny)
