News: Rojo bought by SixApart

At 10 am today, Six Apart announced it’s acquired Rojo, the newsreader company Kevin Burton, Mark Graham, Chris Alden and I started back in 2003 and that Chris has continued to run and grow.
Chris will run Moveable Type, and SixApart will keep the IP but actually look to sell stakes in the newsreader once the transaction is completed.
Congrats, everyone.


Update: Niall’s said what I didn’t have time to add in–some of the whys–
“The acquisition gives Six Apart both a feed reader and feed search engine. Rojo will help generate more pageviews, allowing Six Apart to further leverage its newly created advertising network covering LiveJournal Plus accounts and Vox.”
