Jim Moore's Journal: Reporting on systems evolving :: "An instant review of spaces.msn.com, Microsoft's new blogging service, with special attention to how it compares with Typepad.
Overall, I found the Microsoft service to be an attractive beta entry into the field. It has a good, simple interface, and it provides core blogging functions effectively. It is not a visionary product--it is, perhaps not surprisingly, a fast-follower product that looks and feels very much like its leading competitors. Because the service looks and feels most like Typepad, and because I view Typepad as the current market and feature leader, I've focused on comparing and contrasting spaces.msn.com and Typepad in this review."
