Movable Type and WordPress Meet

LoicLoïc Le Meur Blog: MT and WordPress meet :=) I didn’t get to see Loïc again on Friday like we originally planned, but in the short time we met I got a good impression. People assume that behind the scenes we’re all at each other’s throats, that it’s all WordPress vs. MT vs. Drupal vs. TextPattern vs. Blogger vs. whatever, but it’s actually the opposite. Though there may be some professional differences (you say po-tah-to, I say PHP) everyone is genuinely friendly. Behind the tools are normal people, not super-villians. While meeting with a large potential WordPress user I suggested they also check out Typepad and Blogware because I’ve personally used each and they seem like solid platforms worthy of investigation. I hung out with Anil half of the days I was in San Francisco. Life is too short to waste karma on blogging, and while I get as passionate about the issues as anyone, at the end of the day we’re all contributing something positive to the medium. Of course, Mingus would say “They’re singing your praises while stealing your phrases.”

  1. I still am surprised that Ben didn’t hold you down while Mena gave you a noogie and Anil gave you a wedgie. That would have been prime geek humor, light-hearted and fun. :D
