Six Apart Professional Network Overview: This looks like a bribe to get you on a mailing list.
The Six Apart Professional Network consists of a number of benefits designed to help you get the most out of Six Apart’s Movable Type, TypePad, and TypeKey platforms. Whether you’re a consultant, designer, developer, IT or IS professional or just interested in how you can use weblogs, the Professional Network provides resources to make your work with blogs easier and more fun. And best of all, membership in the Network is free.
Before you roll your eyes, however, this benefit makes it a pretty good bribe.
All network members are eligible for a special Professional Network commercial license for Movable Type 3.1. This fully-featured commercial license is yours to use as a benefit of joining the Professional Network.
I still haven’t quite figured out the catch. I just joined and was able to download what they tell me is a full, 5-author, commercial version of MT 3.1. There’s gotta be a catch in here somewhere.
I’ve been reading the email that comes across the ProNet mailing list, and it’s awfully intelligent. The list is full of people who know MT to a level to which I’ve never achieved — lots of great conversation about things under-the-hood and aspects of the platform I’ve never considered.
And no idiots yet, which is pretty good for a mailing list. I’ll keep my mouth shut, lest I become the first.
Does the “Professional Network commercial license” act just like the regular commerical license? ie. Is there any limit on the amount of blogs or authors you can have?
