    WP Mainline Episode 23 - Saving the Internet and Saving Open Source

    In this episode, Malcom Peralty and I catch up on a few of the stories we’ve missed since the start of the New Year. We briefly go over what’s new in WooCommerce 6.1, what I feel was missed in the revised guidelines proposal for in-person WordPress events, and Yoast SEO creating an app for Shopify.



    We also discuss whether or not Matt Mullenweg can save the internet. I don’t think one person can but, Matt is certainly in a place where he can do a lot of good for the internet and humanity. Last but not least, I share my joy in saving a bit of cash each year as GoDaddy will now include privacy settings for WHOIS information by default.

    In this episode, Malcom Peralty and I provide an overview of the State of the Word presentation. We cover various points of information, talk about the future of WordPress, and how important CC-0 content is not only to WordPress but to the web in general. We also talk about features coming in WordPress 5.9 and the concerning statistic of open source content management systems losing market share while closed systems are significantly increasing theirs.

If I want to really protect myself from this new variant, the good news is I’m back double bank’s needed. We’re trying to schedule our boosters as soon as possible. And from what I’ve been able to tell the vaccines are doing, from what we can tell, we’ve been doing a great job of battling these, these variants and mostly all the bad news I’m seeing.

    Better late than never! I hope everyone had a good holiday last week. I ended up getting some of my much-needed medication so things are not as bleak as they were last week. At any rate, you can listen to last week’s news today!



    We start off the show by discussing the major breach that occurred at GoDaddy and question whether two-factor authentication will be a requirement going forward.

And, uh, he said, you know, Christmas is kind of more for the kids and Thanksgiving is kind of more for the adults. So that’s why it’s kind of treated as this, you know, bigger event. Um, how do you feel about that? Do you agree? Like is Thanksgiving bigger than Christmas and, and a lot of,Speaker 1 00:01:40 Well, let’s put it this way.

    WP Mainline Episode 19 - GoDaddy Acquires Pagely, Doing The Woo, and WordPress Contributor Churn

    WP Mainline Episode 19 - GoDaddy Acquires Pagely, Doing The Woo, and WordPress Contributor Churn

    In this episode, Malcolm Peralty and I are joined by Bob Dunn of Do The Woo fame to discuss the news of the week. We started off by discussing the most surprising acquisition of the year with GoDaddy acquiring Pagely. We briefly touch on what’s new in WordPress 5.8.2 while trying to figure out how to pronounce Thijs de Valk’s name. Thijs de Valk is the new CEO for Yoast.



    Bob explains what exactly his partnership with Post Status entails and what we can expect from it. Last but not least, we had a great discussion about Paul Lacey’s post and contributor churn in WordPress and whether or not WordPress could one day run out of free labor to keep the project going. If you tell me the correct number of times I say “Do The Woo” in this episode, contact me and I might have a surprise for you.

    WP Mainline Episode 18 - WP Scan Acquired, WordFest Live 2022, and Jeffro AI

    In this episode, Malcolm Peralty and I discussed the news of week starting off with Automattic’s acquisition of WPScan. I also shared my experience of what it was like to spend eight straight hours of reading, participating, and writing about WordPress. It’s exhausting.



    We then shared news of the WordPress community gift exchange and Malcolm put out a challenge for someone to create a Secret Santa WordPress site so folks could use it instead of Elfster. WordFest 2022 announced it will take place on March 4th, 2022. I’m a huge fan of a Big Orange Heart Foundation and am hopeful the organization can fulfill its sponsorships for 2022.



    Near the end of the show, we discussed yet again the writing experience in WordPress. We also described how Bob Dunn is synonymous with WooCommerce. If there’s a Woo, there’s a Bob. Last but not least, we wonder who could write a WordPress post better, Jeffro or Jeffro AI. Would you be able to tell the difference?
