WordPress.com – New Hosted Blogging Service

At the Blog Business Summit (BBS05) during the week, Matt Mullenweg, of WordPress, announced an upcoming, fully-managed hosted blogging service to be called WordPress.com, and presented a demo.

Though some had heard rumours, it came as a surprise to most and will operate in direct competition to Six Apart’s TypePad hosted blogging service. However, according to Technosight, it not only sports some awesome new features but — unlike TypePad — WordPress.com will be free.

Others are touting the new service as a commercial one, so it will be good when the WordPress current events page provides some detail.
