Vox was a specialized blogging tool from Six Apart, the makers of MovableType and TypePad.
When Vox launched in late 2006, it was one of the few blogging platforms out there that let users define the level of privacy they wanted for each post--something we now take for granted on places like Facebook. This became important though, given the social nature of the site, which encouraged Vox bloggers to visit other users' sites.
Six Apart gave its users about a month to clean house and take their blogs elsewhere, including the company's own TypePad product, for which there was arguably quite a bit of overlap.
