Post Status Excerpt (No. 47) — Should WordPress Adopt the Block Protocol?

“It is now time for the community to weigh in and decide whether WordPress should stop and refuel in this new port.” —Leonardo Losoviz

In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, David talks with Leonardo Losoviz about The Block Protocol and why it might benefit WordPress to adopt it and allow other platforms to share and reuse blocks. Matt Mullenweg has expressed interest in taking this path.

Why This Is Important: Gutenberg, according to Matt, is “bigger than WordPress,”, especially in the context of the Open Web. The Block Protocol is a way to create and share content across WordPress, half-WordPress, and non-WordPress sites, which supports the project's mission to democratize publishing.
