I was directed to this when going through WordPress Foundation financials. It’s a long story but suffice it to say that over at the Post Status slack, Timi Wahalahti pointed me in the right direction. If you are into the operations side of what happens at WordCamps, I highly recommend going to WordCamp Central Reports. […]
Well not quite today, or even tomorrow, or likely even this year, but meetups may actually have an opportunity in the near future to get people in the same room. Over at WordPress.org, Proposal: Decision making checklist for safe, in-person meetups, has been submitted for discussion and feedback (due by Friday, January 15, 2021). This […]
This is an absolute first, and maybe the start of a trend, Rich Hill, Founder of FortressDB has submitted his predictions for the State of the Word 2020. You can catch up with Rich and almost 100 other viewers at Steak of the Word, December 17 2020 at 15:30 UTC. I made some edits for […]
Announced yesterday afternoon at WordPress.org, the annual State of the Word will delivered by the project co-founder, Matt Mullenweg, on December 17th, 2020 at 1600 UTC (10:00 AM CT).

I’m really excited for the last WordCamp of 2020 – unless there is something sneaky happening – maybe a State of the Word? Now if your Spanish is as good as mine (which it isn’t), using Google Translate to walk through the site works just great. Given that we really don’t know when or even […]
Before we dive in today, a quick word from Matt Mullenweg on whether there will be a State of the Word this year, “We’re exploring how to best recap this year and talk about possibilities for 2021 in a State of the Word like online event.” Cool! This WordPress pop-up has driven me crazy for […]
Sometimes the topics are a bit random and getting them to tie together can be tricky, so today where going with TLWs (three letter words). Ok, not actually words but abbreviations, heckle elsewhere. We have business, technology, and community represented.

Even though the usual conference season for the rest of 2020 is well, not. There are some highlights coming up and actually the lack of an almost weekly event is a bit of relief given the Zoom fatigue that has permeated especially the tech industry.
There was only one Zoom a day when I was growing up but these days we have so many to choose from that aren’t forced meetings. The really interesting ones on the list for the rest of the week include WordCamp for Publishers, Omnisend, cPanel, and Joomla.
