I had read Brian’s post—actually I caught his quip earlier in the day, but it didn’t really sink in until I saw Alex’s post illustrating that the original Weblogs, Inc. management team was now completely gone. I had a blast spending time with the entire Blogsmith team at SXSW and finally got to meet Brian; yes, I did meet him at WINStock, but being in the middle of a complete platform overhaul is no time to meet a dev. Gavin has an interesting post describing much of the platform’s growth and how the team got to where it is today. I know Brian is going to have a lot of fun over at ComicMix and I look forward to working with him in the future (I should get cracking on that Galactus WiFi helmet).
