John Maseda blogged an excerpt of a message he shared within Automattic Design, entitled “Why WordPress?“. Highly recommend spending a few minutes to read his thoughts about why WordPress is trust-worthy but especially his point about WordPress – and it's community needs to change.
How do we need to work differently? By inclusively growing our community of developers, designers, and businesses, we can renew WordPress for the mobile and multi-device era.
John notes this work was started at WordCamp US in 2016 with a “small group of designer/technologists”. WordPress can't stand still – it's community is growing and changing and because of that we must accept and strive for WordPress to be inclusive and adapt as well.
