For the Spanish speakers in the crowd, noted blogger Enrique Dans has switched to WordPress. The switch was done by Blogestudio, whose Luis Rull was my host in Seville. They’ve done something neat with redirecting old links on Blogspot, I hope they publish more about that. (I wonder if they could use Blogger’s new Custom Domains feature to make it automatic.)
Devin Reams has done the first WordPress fan song, check out the music video on his site. Too cool for words.

Since everyone is talking about Macs today — did you see the iPhone — I thought it would be a good time to pose to my highly intelligent readers a question that has vexed me for months. I have a Dell 24″ monitor attached to a Mac Mini, my preferred configuration for this is vertical (you can turn the Dell on its side) but I can’t find the setting in OS X that lets you put the screen into portrait mode. Any tips? Update: It was right under my nose. System Prefs -> Displays -> Rotate. Thanks to Daniel and Barry.
One thing I’ve found in the past year is there is sometimes a huge disconnect between people who make noise on blogs, or might have impressive blogs themselves, and productivity in the real world. It’s unfortunate, because it makes it that much harder to find good folks.
Tomorrow I’m going to be on the web radio show Net Income. That entry mentions my Wikipedia page, which oh-my-goodness has an awful picture.
Jason just wrote in that Ford Motor Company has launched a WordPress site, and it’s pretty kickass. How cool that the first Fortune 5 company to use WP goes beyond just a regular blog and really shows what can be done with a powerful framework.
Google Browser Sync doesn’t suck anymore. In fact, it works great, just like you would expect a Google product to. I’ve replaced Foxmarks with it.

RTL support in WordPress 2.1, I’m really looking forward to the release of 2.1 this month. Our internationalization efforts is probably where I learn the most new stuff day to day.
The A List Apart Style Guide is fantastic, a nice concise refresher for anyone who writes to be read.
How WordPress Spoils Developers, I get the impression Brian is bullish on the future of WP. He’s right that we have a lot left to work on though, after 2.1 is out the door I think there’s going to be a ton more core development. Update: I agree far more with the developer-friendly bits than the “no room for anyone else” bits. If the latter arguments were true, WP itself wouldn’t exist and the fact that it’s never too late for something new is a point I emphasize in my talks a lot.
