it is time

People, the time is night. SixApart’s recent announcement regarding the licensing change for MovableType 3 has caused and will continue to cause many headaches to the bloggers around the world. Even more problematic is the cost to which it would cost people to use their system. Over the past couple days, the WordPress has seen a HUGE influx of new users, both at the user-level and in the uber-geek area as well. Thank goodness there are people like myself and Craig around to translate between the alpha’s and the omega’s.

I’ve gotten Jim to ease onto the WordPress bandwagon with a site he is currently developing and I’m hoping that he is loving it. He and Eric are both MT users and one can only hope that they will see the light soon.

All of this is being said for one main reason. MovableType users, switch/upgrade to WordPress! Eric Meyer did it. Mark Pilgrim did it. There are loads of others who have made the switch.

So, if you use MT to power a blog. The time is nigh! My friend Carthik, aka 2fargon, has written an excellent guide to making the conversion, so check it out!

Besides, all of us cool people have been using WordPress for a while now
