Keynote video from State of the Word 2010

If you haven’t yet seen the “State of the Word” keynote from WordCamp San Francisco, held on May 12, then it’s worth a watch. Matt Mullenweg, WP’s founder, talks about WP’s history, the challenges of a growing platform, and highlights the neat features of WordPress 3.0, which will soon be released.

I’ve been a big fan of WordPress, and have been using it since late 2005 (publicly since 2006). After more than three years of self-hosting a install, I moved to, so I could focus on writing and leave the hosting to the folks that made the platform.

Can’t wait to see (and use) the new features of WP 3.0!
