Silence of the A-List
I've been reading a lot about the Movable Type license change. I already noted that I'm unhappy about this. I think this was handled extraordinarily poorly. I've been reading a lot on the issue, not just to see people's responses, but also to pick up hints for possible replacement tools.
While reading the responses, I'm stricken by the complete lack of comment on the matter among the A-List bloggers—at least the ones I follow. I suspect many of them have been placed in an awkward position. They may see the move as ill-advised, but don't want to talk trash about their friends Anil and the Trotts. So rather than comment on this important development, we're hearing a lot of silence.
It's almost like we've got our own little form of media consolidation in the blogosphere.
