Movable Type is a weblog publishing system developed by California-based Six Apart. It was publicly announced on 3 September 2001,
Movable Type Enterprise version has become a standard corporate and enterprise blogging software because of advanced features such as LDAP management, enterprise database integration such as Oracle, MySQL, user roles, blog cloning and automated blog provisioning. It is also available as part of Intel's SuiteTwo professional software offering of Web 2.0 tools.
Six Apart also maintains three other weblog publishing systems, TypePad, LiveJournal and Vox. While Movable Type is a system which needs to be installed on a user's own web server, TypePad is a hosted weblog service. LiveJournal is an entirely separate blogging system, acquired after Six Apart's buyout of Danga Interactive in January 2005.
Movable Type was originally named Serge after musician Serge Gainsbourg.
