This is notable not just because of the tech nostalgia---there’s a lot of that in the episode, too, which is what happens when you hang around an industry for 20 years---but because Gruber and I both run our websites on Movable Type. As John says in the episode, I may be the last person to launch a brand-new website on Movable Type 4. I doubt that, but point taken!
Using what you know is often a good thing. Unless there are a very good reason for moving forward. That is the reason I moved to Jekyll. The move wasn’t that big. I know Markdown, and I love using terminal and the shell. In other words: the move brought my a workflow that is simpler and more efficient for me. Anyways, always think about the “why” if you consider moving to something new.
