WordPress 10th Anniversary

Come celebrate the 10th anniversary of the very first WordPress release in 2003!

This social will join others around the world in a social hangout format at ML Rose for great burgers, conversation, and a few beers. Now that WordCamp is over, we are going to take a month off in planning and take it easy this May. We plan to be back in full swing in June.

Here is a little that Lorelle has to to about the 10th Anniversary of WordPress.

"Ten years? Has it only been ten years of WordPress? It doesn’t seem possible. WordPress is on more than 75 million sites around the world as of March 2012, so that number is way out of date.

Interviewed by the Wall Street Journal in November 2011, Matt stated that 1 in 6 websites in the world are on WordPress. That’s a lot of WordPress. And that’s a lot of accomplishment in ten years.

So salute Matt Mullenweg on his birthday, and take some time this year to honor how WordPress has changed your life. Let’s all take a moment to pay tribute to someone whose faith in freedom of speech and helping people have their say has changed the world, not just your life."

      Noted and changed in my calendar. Can't believe it has been 10 years. I think I've been working with it in some fashion since 2005 or 2006.
