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.

    Mant thanks for making the site available on the iPhone Lynn.

    When I get on the bus in he morning, it’s the first site I navigate to and it works beautifully. Many websites are going mobile now which is good to see, so I guess The Standard is a bit of a trensetter!

    Keep up the great work.

      Thanks but I did it for purely selfish reasons. It was hard to read the columns in the normal form. I was considering making the columns thinner for everyone, but that seemed like overkill. So I dug out a number of iPhone compatible plugin’s. This was about the 4th or 5th that I tried. I had to use a beta because the release one was not fully 2.8 compatible.

      I see that SuperCache has caught up with a better handling of mobile stuff. I’ll test that after work today.
