I always like reading Paul Ford’s writing, and this one about How PAPER Magazine’s web engineers scaled Kim Kardashian’s back-end (SFW) is funny and accessible. I learned that people still use Movable Type. Also if PAPER used VIP, the story would be short and boring:

  1. Wake up, press the publish button.
  2. Watch the stats go crazy. Sip some bourbon.
  3. Go to sleep.

  1. Really Matt, you wasted time commenting on the one win Movable Type had in the past 5 years? Wow, you hold long grudges and are a bitter person. You won, take the higher ground and move on. Plus it was not MT that really held the fort down, it was a product called topics. They don’t mention that, but details are important.
