After facing a virtual mob of outraged Webloggers following his abrupt shutdown of the weblogs.com service, Dave Winer says he has a transition plan for former users of the free Weblog site.

Several Manila-based services are preparing special offers, and members of the WordPress project are working on some translation process for the Manila-based sites, he added.
