Of course it can! I remember using WordPress.com to start my first blog. It was an amazing experience. I liked the ease of using it. Great news. I’m planning to apply 🙂 Numbers, numbers, numbers. Those of us who like/use the WP platform get excited about these sort of numbers. On the flipside, pervasiveness leads to high visibility which lends itself to the unsavory. Ergo as numbers increase, the focus for all users and designers must be increased security. Chinks in the armor affects us all. E.g., recent reports on passwords indicate the web users (and even IT personnel) still use foolish threshold keys and/or backdoor access, such as “1234567”, “qwerty” and “password.” And, recently news of hijacked theme(s) surprised many. As WP spreads, proceed with your eyes, ears and mind engaged. If it seems queer, it is; check it out to be sure. Report everything. The nefarious are in abundance. Finally, stay awake as the US federal government, under the guise of the FCC, begins to control the world wide web with “Net Neutrality” legislation. Everything fed does goes into the crapper… All 7 million users are needed to protect WP, access to it and keep government(s) out. Congratulations. What are the statistics for .org? Not sure yet. When will you know? Comments are closed.
