Now this is a huge feather in the already pretty feather-heavy WordPress hat: Wired switches from TypePad to WordPress.

We’ve switched content platforms to WordPress, which should allow for all kinds of widgety fun and games as we move our stuff into the new place and figure out where to hang things.

While at it, the Wired blogs have also gotten something of a facelift to “bring all the Wired blogs into closer sync with the main site, and with the magazine”, which sounds like a good idea.

Naturally, the WordPress Publisher Blog is reporting this, and so is Automattican Matt Mullenweg and Toni Schneider. Six Apart owns the TypePad service, and I bet they are a bit pissed that Wired didn’t go for Movable Type instead.

    They didn’t have to change the freaking font as well, did they? Georgia is more friendly to my eyes than large-type Arial for some reason.
