Zune blogs powered by TypePad

The two Microsoft blogs discussing the upcoming Zune product suite, Zune Insider and Madison and Pine, are powered by Six Apart’s TypePad blogging software. That’s Apache on Linux using Perl and PostgreSQL.

Microsoft is heavily into “dogfooding” everything, from Windows Mobile smartphones to the latest build of Vista. It’s good to see the Xbox team step out and blaze their own path.

    There’s lots of ‘softies using TypePad (or MT or Vox or LiveJournal) for their blogs, and these both seem like personal blogs that happen to talk about the project they’re working on. I wouldn’t read too much into it.

    The blogs were created as part of their evangelist role for each product. The TypePad blogs are Microsoft blogs, staffed by evangelists.
