Ben and Mena are at center stage now, announcing the new Movable Type 3.1 product. It's scheduled to go into beta soon, and should be released next month. Ben said last night at the developer's dinner that it would be August 31 (cute again), but that date hasn't been mentioned again.

I'm currently in the general session at the BlogOn 2004 event. I'll admit that I'm probably not paying nearly as much attention as I ought to. But if the folks around me are any indication, I'm not the only one whose concentration is currently focused somewhere else. In any case...

Last night, we found out about the winners of the Plug In to Movable Type developer's contest (I won a third prize for MT-Notifier). Then a bunch of mostly developer-types - in which I include myself, even though I'm not sure that I'm completely deserving - went out to dinner.
