Om Malik reports that Six Apart is about to acquire Live Journal.

Om says that the deal "gives the company a very fighting chance against Google’s Blogger and Microsoft’s MSN Spaces."

Update: SiliconBeat posts some good background on the companies. Danah Boyd thinks there may be a culture mismatch.

Update: It's official. Xeni Jardin posts the news and links out to announcements from LiveJournal and SixApart.
