WordPress is one of the most widely adopted, easily modified and customized blogging and content management platforms available. It’s what powers the Pork Roll world as well as some larger sites (oh, like CNN’s blogs); WordPress blogs are read by some tens of millions of users a day. Cool? Not as cool as being involved.
WordCamp New York City 2009 is now open for registration, speaker selection and general excitement. The venue has moved to Baruch College, making this year’s event potentially an order of magnitude larger than last year’s 150-person gig. Disclaimer: Sun Microsystems, my employer, is a sponsor of the event, and I’m a volunteer.
Buy your tickets or better yet, become a sponsor. I’ll be there on Sunday November 15, along with fellow Jersey guy Brad Williams and possibly the peninsular David Damastra, also known as my Professional WordPress co-authors. And the t-shirts (logo above) are definitely a badge of nerd honor.
