Special Meetup: Automattic Night

Special Wednesday Night Meetup

This Wednesday June 22, 2011 at 7pm, we will have two special guests: Automattic employees Lance Willett and Justin Shreve.

Automattic is of course the company of Matt Mullenweg, co-creator of WordPress. Automattic was the original trademark owner of "WordPress" and helps empower much of what goes on in the WordPress world. Automattic also owns, operates and manages WordPress.com which currently hosts over 374,000 WordPress blogs for free. Our guests are two of the people who help that happen.

Lance Willett (http://twitter.com/SimpleDream) is Automattic's Theme Wrangler and helps make WordPress.com the beautiful, inviting place it is.

Justin Shreve (http://twitter.com/JustinShreve) is a Code Wrangler for WordPress.com. He helps the WordPress.com be feature rich, and stable.

Lance is in from Tuscon and unfortunately has had to change his flight back so we cannot have him with us on Thursday. So we are scheduling this special Wednesday night meetup at the Cuyahoga falls Office Space Co-Working facilities.

Please reserve your space quickly if you plan on attending so that we can be sure to have seating available.

    Bryan said it best. When the 7:00 meeting breaks up at 11:15, that was a good meetup! Entertaining AND educational. It's like an ABC after school special, with beer.

    Or does "The best of 373,230 bloggers, 384,477 new posts" really mean "Today 373,230 bloggers created 384,477 new posts" Hmm That would make sense...

    Yeah just get rid of "The best of"
    "Freshly Pressed: 373,230 bloggers, 384,477 new posts, 418,494 comments, & 91,828,392 words posted today on WordPress.com"

    See that's confused me because I knew the 20 million number, but on the root of http://wordpress.com/ it shows "The best of 373,230 bloggers". I thought maybe you did a massive cleanup
