Best Open Source Social Networking CMS
WordPress Wins Best Open Source Social Networking CMS. “Packt is pleased to reveal that WordPress is the first winner of the 2007 Open Source CMS Award, picking up the best Open Source Social Networking Content Management System. In a very close category, WordPress came out in front of Elgg and Drupal, who finished joint second.” Yay!
When I was in London I had the chance to chat with Tim Anderson who in turn wrote an article in yesterday’s Guardian, WordPress makes a stand for open source morality, which is worth a read. We also got a mention in the same issue in The office of the future is all around by Victor Keegan.
I was interviewed on Blog Interviewer, there’s audio with a transcription.
After my post talking about Vanilla and Pligg yesterday Duncan Riley at Techcrunch decided to write an article saying “Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg has spoken out against a number of open source projects for profiteering from their code.” That of course isn’t true, and the comment thread that follows is interesting.
Tim Ferriss Interview
I was interviewed by Tim Ferriss of The 4-Hour Workweek on “Simplicity and Start-up Alchemy.” It turned out a little denser and more intellectual than most of my interviews.
My conversation with Lindsay Campbell of Wallstrip is now online, including (most of) the end where she cries tears of joy for lolcats. It was a pleasure chatting with the crew there, and I’m curious to see what ventures they attempt now that they have leverage with Wallstrip.
On Cranky Geeks
I was on episode #76 of Cranky Geeks with John Dvorak, Sebastian Rupley, and Om Malik. We talked about Bubble 2.0, unions, iPhones, and vasectomies. This episode was a lot of fun and I suggest checking it out.
Toni on Wallstrip
Toni Schneider of Automattic was interviewed on Wallstrip today. We got to hang out a bit with the Wallstrip team and they’re very sharp, though maybe short on the Wii Tennis. Yesterday they did a musical review of the company behind most states’ Lotto.
Interview on Adii
I did a short interview with Adriaan Pienaar on his site, talking a bit about 2.3 and blogs in media.
KRON on WordCamp
Guardian on Splogs
The Guardian: Why Google is the service of choice for sploggers examines spam, splogs, Blogger, and WordPress.com. As you may tell from the title, it’s overly harsh on Google, but nonetheless has some interesting commentary and information. Like I said last time someone wrote about this, I would never suggest WP.com is splog-free because I delete too many of them myself, but it is a problem we take very seriously and are ever vigilant against.
