  movabletype.org : Movable Type 2.5   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Our tool is used by some of the brightest minds on the Web, we've had the chance to speak and attend numerous technology conferences, we had the opportunity to appear on television and radio and co-author a book.
And probably, most importantly, Movable Type has given us the chance to not only meet many of the people who are shaping the Web, but also the new user who is learning that the Web is truly a two-way medium.

 Matthew G. Kirschenbaum: Old School Moveable Type
Locking up (the type is transferred from the composing stick to the bed of the press and wedged in place by the small pieces of wood, called “furniture”).
You automatically felt for the nick as you picked each piece of type out of the case and you rolled it around between your fingers until the nick faced away from you as you put it into the stick, following your copy at all times.
According to the exhibit, and in accordance with what Stan writes above, the compositor does not look at the type as it is placed in the stick, but feels where the nick is in order to correctly orient the type while staying focused on the copy.

 Harvard Gazette: 'No laptops allowed' at the Adams House printing press
This is moveable type in its original sense — little backward letters made from lead alloy, lying in wooden cases.
You move them, not with a keystroke or the tweak of a mouse, but by picking them up with your ink-stained fingers and fitting them into a compositor's stick.
The ink-stained fingers of work-study student Hagan (below) sort type as she minds her p's and q's — in the original sense, that is. P's face left and q's right, the opposite of the way they turn out on the page.

 Blogging with MovableType
If you are not comfortable installing and configuring a Perl script on a web server, I suggest you sign up for MT's paid installation (see pricing options) or find a script-savvy friend or family member to install the software for you.
Movable Type is a "decentralized web-based personal publishing system designed to ease maintenance of regularly-updated content." While there are other options such as Blogger and Livejournal, MT has many advantages such as its flexiblity and powerful features.
There are various types of blogs such as journal-style, photoblogs, community style with multiple authors (e.g.

However, prior to Movable Type 3.34, FastCGI support could only be achieved by applying a number of patches to the MT source code.
Now Movable Type is capable of detecting when it is running under FastCGI automatically and take advantage of its unique performance benefits without the user or the system administrator needing to do a thing.
Because of the profound performance benefits of FastCGI and the security fixes made in Movable Type 3.34 we encourage all users to upgrade to the latest version of Movable Type as soon as possible.

Movable Type does not provide any hosting space and the assumption is that you are publishing directly to the same server (remote host) where you have installed the software.
Installing Movable Type is probably the greatest barrier to adoption (although they offer a fairly cheap paid service to help you get going and helpful troubleshooting tips), especially if one is relying on a paid remote host with restrictions on things like what sorts of CGI scripts can be run.
Movable Type also now features Track Back which enables you to ping a blog when you are commenting on it in your own blog and, likewise, enables you to show excerpts from blogs that have pinged you when commenting on your posts.

News that Six Apart is working towards the launch of a new release of MT, a version that adds significant spam bloking techniques as well as a series of features they hope that will propell MT forward as the enterprise blog tool of choice.

The new licensing plan for Movable Type 3.0 is the best thing to happen to WordPress since it forked from b2.
I’m a movable type user, and the new scheme is sad, because I really like MT, especially due to some of it’s plugins.

More recently, Six Apart began talking about Movable Type Pro, and gave the impression that this would be a non-free upgrade for users whose needs exceed the features provided by the current Movable Type system.
Posts like your are the type that dishearten me and my profession because it shows a lack of appreciation for what I and others do.
Of course they can move in a different direction, but trying to justify the price is totally ridicilous.

 Akismet for Moveable Type
So when I heard about Akismet being released for Movable Type last week, I had to go check it out (even though I only own a sandbox Movable Type blog).
Excuse my ignorance of Movable Type, but I expected that the plugin would have to be activated at this point but apparently that is only a WordPress thing.
Because my Movable Type blog is a non-published blog, it was hard for me to determine how exactly Akismet sorts comments/trackbacks it believes is spam.

Users of Moveable Type will be interested in Mena Trott’s recent posting on the upcoming release of MT 3.0.
What we’ve learned in the past year is that every user wants a different set of features, and we need to create a product that is not just feature-packed, but robust, extensible and geared toward a specific audience.
Movable Type 3.0 and on will not be the solution for everyone, and that’s okay.

There's been a lot of talk recently about spammers posting comments in Moveable Type to attract people to their sites.
I believe that a plugin could be written for Moveable Type that could identify spam based on the content of the comment and the content of linked sites.
A score could be assigned to each comment and if the comment met a certain threshold it would be queued or deleted.

I’ve read a lot of interesting posts/thoughts/criticisms of the Moveable Type licensing changes (Feedster search).
One complaint that I’ve seen repeatedly today from various people is that the announced licence tiers leave too big a gap, that “there isn’t a license for me.” I’ve never spoken to the folks at Six Apart, but I’m sure they thought long and hard about this and they probably have a reason for it.
I think it will be interesting to see how Six Apart, Moveable Type, TypePad and WordPress evolve as a result of these changes.
