Metro Detroit WordPress Meetup Message Board › Happy Tenth Anniversary, WordPress!

Happy Tenth Anniversary, WordPress!

Haven't you been using WordPress that long? Don't feel bad – no one has! Like much software, WordPress is still young. But it's got a big anniversary coming up!

WordPress was born 10 years ago this month in Houston, Texas. It was a project begun by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little off the b2/cafelog software they had been using.

There are 10 year anniversary shirts available at the WordPress store (bet you didn't know that existed!):­

Around the world there are going to be WordPress 10 year anniversary celebrations. Bummer, the anniversary falls on Memorial Day – and what happens around here on Memorial Day? Yes, it's the opening weekend of summer for many Michiganders and many of us are leaving town so we are not organizing anything that day. WordPress did put together a central Meetup site, so you can see what might be near you. Some cities are celebrating big time:­

Maybe we could celebrate after our June Meetup?
