TypePad beta in progress?

Mmh... caught this on Jeremy Zawodny's blog:

Apache/2.0.46 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.46 OpenSSL/0.9.7a DAV/2 Server at firstpost.typepad.com Port 80

Apache 2, mod_ssl/2 and DAV/2, interesting combination. I would have hoped mod_perl ;-).

Can I be a TypePad beta tester? Please? Pleeeeease!

P.S.: a fun thought pops to mind. Betas are usually done within a closed community under some sort of non disclosure agreement to avoid the dissemination of negative information that may discredit the product before its public release (one also may want to keep the beta testers community small and focused). In the case of the TypePad, I wonder how feasible it will be for Six Apart to prevent its beta testers to start blogging about it. "Hi, come and test our new blogging service, but please don't blog about it yet". That would be frustrating isn't it?

Yes, it _is_ frustrating ;-)
