I am a graphic and web designer/developer primarily for non-profit institutions, so the WordPress open source philosophy works well for my clients. My areas of specialty are the arts, education and second language acquisition.
Easy, face time across business disciplines is invaluable. Wordpress is about community, with all it's pluses and minuses. If you want A-personality driven software, there's a lot to choose from other than WP. To sustain the core community of and effectiveness of WP, you have to show up in real time and listen to the community and not just yourself. The Meetup provides ample opportunities to develop all of this. It continues to be a good mix of personalities and WP development levels, but, as I say, all participants need to be vigilant about keeping their questions on point for the presenter and only off-point when speaking to the presenter one-on-one.
