“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals.”
— Jean Vanier, Community And Growth
Thinking about WordPress history lately in terms of business and product acquisitions, key investments and hires … it says A LOT about the energy in this community.
There’s another kind of energy too. Anyone can acquire it, but we don’t have a tracker for it. I feel it in the goodwill that exists in so many relationships in this space … young and old ones. New connections being made all the time… It’s something we should all value and want to protect.
I’ve been thinking about the role of empathy in marketing. You really have to start there… thinking about your people. The health of our community has a lot to do with being able to talk with each other… and for our regard for each other that goes beyond the surface of business and tech.
Last but not least in this newsletter are important discussions about the need for greater inclusion, the harm of predatory behavior, and the health of the planet we share. The good we have is always fragile. Knowing this feeds a sense of immense responsibility in me and the rest of us at Post Status.
We hope it does for you too.
