In this presentation Siobhan McKeown explores the philosophical underpinnings of WordPress, ideas like freedom, simplicity, and democracy. She looks at these ideas in their most abstract, tracing how they become concrete in the software and the community.

WCEU 2014 Sketch notes & stats

We’re head over heels in love with these amazing sketch notes that we spotted in the #wceu feed last Saturday, drawn by the wonderful and talеnted Kristin Kokkersvold from Studio Netting. We loved them so much, that we had to ask her to do us a big favour and make a poster with the WCEU 2014 stats. And she did!

Print out your own from this file and let’s thank Kristin for a job well done!

 

Love data? Stay tuned for the full stats recap post. Coming soon.

Cheers!
