Gawker Media to dump SixApart?

July 3, 2006 — 4 Comments

Lots of gossip and news about a big shake up at Gawker Media, including the sale of Sploid and Screenhead which I won’t recount here (if any one knows how or where Denton is selling the sites, let me know) but I did notice this at the tale end of the NY Times article:

For his part, Mr. Denton spends a lot more time reading computer code than blogs. He believes that the common software behind blogs isn’t up to the task and now has 11 people, including 4 in Hungary, working on developing proprietary solutions.

Yep, looks like Nick’s trying to create his own blogging software ala Jason Calacanis’ BlogSmith and will dump SixApart’s MovableType. I’d be interested to know why though?
