Speculation mounts over Six Apart acquisition

Company behind blogging platforms TypePad, Movable Type, and Vox has made a "significant" purchase yet to be announced, according to TechCrunch's Michael Arrington.

Software maker Six Apart has made a "significant" acquisition, according to sources cited by TechCrunch's Michael Arrington.

While the purchase may not be large in size, it possibly will mark a strategic shift for the company behind popular blogging platforms TypePad, Movable Type, and Vox , Arrington said, adding that an official announcement about the buy is due in the next few days.

It's anyone's guess which company Six Apart, which recently sold its LiveJournal unit and launched a Facebook application, may have picked up. Arrington's iPod Shuffle bait (that's the prize he says goes to the first accurate blog response) has attracted more than 200 comments so far.
