Although sixapart owns livejournal now, they were separate products
until Jan 2005. Brad Fitzpatrick is the livejournal guy, who did
memcached and all that fun stuff. Ben and Mena Trott wrote Movable
Type, and their hosted service was TypePad. So, yes, sixapart does
have the expertise that you say, but the way you say it seems to
confuse the Trotts with Fitzpatrick.
