🇮🇳 I had the chance to watch the fireside chat between Matt Mullenweg and Josepha Haden Chomphosy during WordCamp India last weekend. Some highlights:
- Matt on India's significance to WordPress: “I visited [India] in the early years of WP; it’s home of many contributors, and the entire country seems to be very united.”
- Matt on startups like Substack: “Whenever we see a Substack pop up in the market, it’s a moment of reflection of how we can improve WordPress and education material.”
- Josepha on live events: “In the short term, the future of WordCamps is very careful.” We might see small events in the third quarter of 2021. But moving forward, events might have a global appeal, and even in-person events might include an online component and reduce a barrier to entry.
