So I thought I’d start this blog with a dedication, a bit of gratitude if you will.
Since version 1.2 of WordPress, each readme.html file included with the WordPress download has included the following “first things first” statement from Matt Mullenweg:
“Welcome. WordPress is a very special project to me. Every developer and contributor adds something unique to the mix, and together we create something beautiful that I’m proud to be a part of. Thousands of hours have gone into WordPress, and we’re dedicated to making it better every day. Thank you for making it part of your world.”
Matt thanks us, the WordPress users, for making WordPress a part of our world. It is, however, we that should thank Matt and all his co-developers around the world for making WordPress a part of our world. That’s what I reckon anyway. WordPress has affected literally millions of lives for the better. Thank you to all those who contribute to it.
