It’s Just Software

Seen on the secret Automattic chat room:

photomatt_lap: okay, think we can import their wp_tags to categories and 
just switch up those functions to use wp_categories instead of wp_tags?
       rboren: Well of course we can...
       rboren: It's just software.

In 2002 I started contributing to Open Source software, and life has just gotten better from there. Co-founder of WordPress, founder Automattic.

  1. I say the same thing working as a tester/designer – “Can we do it? We can do anything, it’s just code. You just have to be willing to buy enough of it”


  2. Heh, I use that one all the time. A customer will ask, “Can you do X?” and I say, “Hey. sure, it’s just software.”

    Which of course makes the developers cringe.

    But not as much as the customers usually cringe when they see the cost estimate. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And Hi Matt!


  3. Matt, my blog appears to load when it’s loading and it appears the stylesheets for my theme are located here! Interesting :p

    I thought you were taking over for a second :p


  4. Ew. This sounds like some more “tags and categories are the same” abuse. Tell me I’m wrong, please Matt. I want real categories back on WordPress too.
