“While WordPress does democratize publishing there are people today that don’t or (perhaps worse) can’t take advantage of it.”
In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, Cory comes back freshly tanned from CaboPress to share his experiences and one big takeaway point that everyone can appreciate. David brings up how Facebook’s outage this week made him start to give pause before quipping on Twitter about “owning your own content.” He asks if or how WordPress and the open web can help the people for whom Facebook is the internet.
Also covered in this episode: A shout out to WordCamp US 2021 which was held virtually for the first time on October 1st — a fine virtual event after only eight weeks of planning!
