Rich Tabor has posted his reflections on 2019, which included joining GoDaddy and selling CoBlocks and ThemeBeans. His goals for 2020 are “to simply read more,” “produce music,” and “get involved with core Gutenberg on a deeper level.” Rich predicts this is going to be “an even bigger year for the block editor” than 2018 and 2019, and he describes what is probably the only way to make WordPress “future proof:”
“I want to build a WordPress that my children will fall in love with. Will share their adventures with. Will make their mark with.”
In another post, Rich outlines a new look for the Login Designer website. He used the Twenty Twenty theme and Tailwind CSS, noting he “wanted to experiment with a fully utility-based framework and better understand both shortcomings and opportunities with this flavor of site building in WordPress.” It looks nice; you should check it out.
