Six Apart knows how to focus

In "Mena's Corner: Where's the Beef?", Mena Trott writes, "Movable Type 3.0 will not be the solution for everyone, and that's okay. For some users, TypePad makes more sense. For others, non-Six Apart tools make more sense."

Amazing! The founder is saying that her solution isn't designed for everyone. The company has a clear idea of who their customers are and what those customers need. And more importantly, they recognize that some customers are not the right fit for their product. It's been said that you don't know who you are as a company until you refuse a client. Who are your customers? And who aren't your customers?
