Six Apart and VideoEgg create SAY Media: a modern media company
Dear TypePad bloggers,
It’s been almost a decade since we started Six Apart. With you, the bloggers and creators, we changed the way people expressed themselves online, empowering anyone to publish and build large and loyal audiences. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support and trust as you’ve shared your worlds and your passions on TypePad.
Today we announced our intention to join forces with VideoEgg to form a new, modern media company called SAY Media. This new company will continue Six Apart’s mission to make creators like you more successful. It will continue to help you create powerful and engaging content, and grow and monetize your audience. And it will continue to leave you in control.
At one time, I ran my personal blog on Movable Type (what TypePad is based on). I also ran my personal blog on Vox (another Six Apart property that is closing at the end of the month). Their platforms really seem to have stagnated without any real innovation. I’m not sure that “joining forces” with VideoEgg (a company I never heard of before now) will do anything to change that.
