Six Apart has redesigned their site(s)

Six Apart, the company that brings us Moveable Type, TypePad, and recently bought Livejournal (and the company that I really really wanted to work for back when I was beginning to look for a job), has redesigned their corporate site. It's good, very clean and lots of added new content.

They moved to SF in December and I'd been wondering where their new location was. The new address is on their website, and it turns out they're about six blocks away from CNET. Does that mean we're...dare I say it...six apart?

(Okay, it's more like five, but how could I resist?)

So anyway, I was out walking today, nowhere near the Six Apart offices, because, y'know, I'm not a stalker or anything, and I walked down this little side street, as I'm wont to do, and there were all these birds singing and some great jazz saxophone in the air.

This is decidedly not the normal soundtrack of downtown SF, nor even SOMA, so I had to intestigate. There was this guy out back of his business playing sax along to some music on the stereo, and it rung around the whole street.

The best thing was, he had this audience of dozens of birds that were all perched on his fence and lining all the wires and trees and fire escapes across the alley from his place. It was really cool, as if the music had attracted them, and it seriously seemed as if they were all kind of hanging out looking at him playing. Okay, so his birdbath and bird feeder may have had a little to do with it, but it still made me wonder how much of it was the music...
