Ever Wonder Why
The WordPress Community
Is So Darn Passionate?
This brief five minute video will introduce you to WordPress’ founder, Matt Mullenweg…
… explain why the GPL is so important to protect…
… and show you why some of us (myself included) absolutely love attending WordCamp!
Matt Mullenweg founded WordPress to “democratize publishing for the world.” In his interview with “This is Us!”, Matt explains the community-focused business philosophy behind the amazing success of WordPress.
This video just makes me smile and I hope it shows you why I adore the WordPress community…
… Why I stress the need to actively give back to the WordPress community…
… and why its fair to say at this point that I’m quite the fan girl for WordPress!
Have you contributed to the WordPress community yet?
Have you participated and interacted with other open source communities such as Mozilla (Firefox), Linux (Ubuntu, etc…), Open Office and many more?
Have you promoted the community, software and spirit of WordPress to others?
If you haven’t had a chance to get to a WordCamp yet I highly suggest looking into them… they’re regular, fairly frequent, and quite affordable compared to most conferences.
I have had an absolute blast at both Chicago, IL WordCamp 2010 and Savannah, GA WordCamp 2010 and am looking at potentially attending Louisville, KY 2010 WordCamp on Dec 4th and I’d love to be able to attend the one in San Diego, CA WordCamp next summer!
Check out they map, people like YOU host them all over the world!
Leave me your thoughts below on how we can do even more to help the WordPress community and thanks oodles for all the shares, tweets and syndications!
