Matt Mullenweg’s interview with Blogging Pro might not have been the hyped up media event, but it gives some insights into his thoughts which will drive the future of WordPress. I really like when he says that
I don’t take competition too seriously, you have to do your own thing and not focus on other projects, but where services or features are particularly successful
There is also a very interesting link to the moment when WordPress was created. Very two powerful notions are projected from these:
- Web is forever, it is one of the best archival systems where you will be able to find stuff for a long time, and even track it.
- WordPress is an ideal example of open source movement. You can actually see collaboration between those comments and a common urge to build better software.
It will be really interesting to see where WordPress and WordPress.com head too. I personally feel, somewhere WordPress should look at integration into the enterprise world. However, the challenge here would be to do it without affecting the common WordPress user.
