Presentation Feedback

Matt at BBS

First I wanted to thank everyone that came out terribly early in the morning at 8 AM for the WordPress presentation, espescially in light of some of the great parties last night. Don’t forget to email me if you caught me right after the presentation and gave me your business card, as that way I’ll be sure to reply.

Here’s some of the feedback I’ve been seeing, I’ll update this post throughout the course of the day as feedback shows up on Technorati and Feedster and in the WordPress dashboard. If you have a post I’ve missed please leave a comment.

  2. So does this mean there is now a for-profit company you’ve launched that’s behind Which is fine but I haven’t seen any discussion of this aspect of the effort.


  3. I didn’t see any mention of that, except maybe in the Silicon Beat post: “Also, Mullenweg wants to turn WordPress into a real company, so that users have a place to go — an entity to hold accountable…more…”

    What I meant to say was that things like support and service level agreements and all that jazz are very important to businesses and enterprises. That’s not terribly interesting to me personally, however. Those people still need someplace to go though, and I’m not sure what that looks like yet. If something that big were announced, we’d definitely make a big deal about it! This is just about getting more people blogging for whom WordPress is inaccessible right now.


  4. Very intriguing Matt. I’m thrilled that WordPress is making such a large stride, although I really don’t know what is all about yet. I know you have to be invited but that’s about it. Are you going to divulge any more details?

    Congratulations are in order for Matt and the WordPress Team! Half a million downloads and I’m really looking forward to 1.6.


  5. = = information revolution yet to be categorized by any other.

    Quite frankly, I believe the vast majority of the blogosphere have not realized what WordPress is doing/will do for the community as a whole. Not just for bloggers, but having the ability to aquire (freely) a piece of software that is highly customizable, very powerful at information distribution, and offers a small learning curve, WordPress gives everyone the ability to expand knowledge.

    WHY I just said that, I have no clue…I guess that I’m just pumped about all the happenings in the WP community. 🙂

  7. As I have mentioned on my blog, so far everyone is clueless except MATT and those who have been involved in this project (Donncha???). Therefore saying that is striving to make money or comparing it with redhat/typepad would be wrong. Probably the best thing to do at the moment is to add this blog to your feed-reader and keep an eye on the updates (exactly what I am doing).
    Hope to see some more progress soon.

    Good job Matt, i’m sure you’ve got alot of people glued to their monitors 😛

  9. Matt,

    Great presentation. You convinced me that is the platform I believe I want to use for our new blog when it comes out. I will definitely be emailing you.

  11. Thanks for the ping Matt. As I’m reflecting on this morning, I think it has a lot of potential as a challenge to Blogger and even TP and Blogware. The flexibilty you describe of making fan blogs or niche blogs spun off a central blog, that is going to be interesting to watch.
    Can’t wait to try it.

  13. So, I get my post mentioned by Matt himself 🙂 Thanks. I just realized it a couple of minute ago. Your post -this post- is fun since I finally see the face of.. you. Hey is that you? Ah, still so young but managed to do something cool like WP.Four thumbs up (that’s all I got). Goodluck with and all.


  14. Matt: This all sounds well and good, but one question: will users soon have to pay for Word Press (the software)? After all, sustaining all that bandwidth for is gonig to cost a pretty penny. I take it then the income generated by folks paying for will be enough to sustain it?
