Six Apart to buy Live Journal?

Om Malik on Broadband » Six Apart to buy Live Journal:

I have learnt exclusively that Six Apart, the parent company behind hosted blogging service TypePad, and Moveable Type is about to acquire Live Journal, for an undisclosed amount.

If Om is correct about this, it’s a very interesting move. LiveJournal is probably the blogging system that’s most focused on community, thanks to its “Friends” system, and it’s a very very different beast from TypePad.
