As always, South by Southwest was the real conference highlight of the year. I tell people that if they can only go to one conference in a year, SxSW is the one to go to. It’s hard to match the sheer quantity of amazing people in one place anywhere else in the world. There isContinue reading “SxSW Wrap-up”
The wifi is awful here, so not much blogging being done.
I was just in this panel on creativity and it was fantastic. The sole panelist was a yoga teacher of some sort and had a really interesting perspective on how posture, breathing, stretching, etc can have dramatic effects.

For some of you this might be a big deal: we’ve added RSD support to all WordPress.com blogs (and in WordPress itself). We also have some pretty cool WYSIWYG enhancements coming from Andy, so stay tuned.
As we announced on the dashboard, on Friday around 1 AM we moved WordPress.com to a new datacenter and a new set of servers. A month or so ago a similar transition didn’t go so well so we tested things very heavily before the change and thanks to the hard work of Donncha and RyanContinue reading “New Datacenter and Caching”
