If you’re interested in the software that runs this site and many others, there is a wordcamp in Wellington this weekend about the open-source wonder WordPress.
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.
Unfortunately I wasn’t aware that it was on until I listened to Kim Hill this morning. I suppose that this aging programmer should actually sign up to some things with my own name rather than as James T Kirk.But old programmers are paranoid about overflowing spam on their mail servers.
As well as being in Wellington, it looks like it is all booked out. It is a pity because one of the things that they’re going to talk about is WordPress on iPhone’s (and the like).
I read this site on my iPhone on the way to and from work each work-day on the bus. It has been interesting over the last few months watching an increasing number of other people doing the same. There are currently a number of plugin’s for wordpress that do this including the elegant one that drives this site when you access it with a iPhone, android, or some blackberries (9500 and 9530). There is also something that tags itself as ‘dream’ supported as well.
Reminds me – time to head to a bus. But thanks a *lot* for the software. We stress it with the hundred thousand comments and thousands of posts on this site.
