Posted by darbs on November 17, 2009
On behalf of my fellow Filipino WordPress Users all over the world I, (Darbs) unofficially represented my PinoyWordpressBloggers, (In the spirit of social climbing: Keeping the social climbing alive, Sayonara Anoymous Commenters! ) FOR THE WEEKEND WORDCAMP NYC 2009.
That is right! – I voluntarily, silly-ly and anonymously without any illusion of anonymity (because without a doubt, BIG BROTHERS know me by heart: HELLO VIDEO CAMERAS wherever I go! -there you go!) represented those who are listed in my BLOGROLL and who are using WordPress.com free hosting and/or WordPress CMS applications downloaded/uploaded/installed/configured in their webservers.

The Letter: Dear Fellow WordPress Users. Here are some of the highlights from the WordCamp NYC 2009 in one Sunday afternoon weekend sessions at Mason Hall (17 Lexington ave and 23rd Street).
1. I got my share of WordCamp NYC WNYC shirt (long sleeves)
2. A Picture taking with Matt Mullenweg. Matt Who?
Matt is the founding developer of WordPress, the open source blogging software that runs millions of sites around the world. In 2005, he started Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, Akismet, Gravatar, bbPress, IntenseDebate, and BuddyPress. Source: Meet the WordCamp Speakers
One picture with Matt, that’s all I got. Thank you bro!
Note: I’d also seen some famous personalities of automattic but “chickened out” to ask for their autograph. I could only wish I had the “HEART” OF A PAPPARAZZI!
3. Exciting moment for the ordinary wordpress user like me! – The Manage Theme as we know it, will soon be history!
Watch out for the Elastic! – - Where in the near future, we will design our own word press theme by the power of DRAG AND DROP and CLICK! HOWAAA!
Please give thanks to Mr. Daryl Koopersmith!
Daryl is a junior majoring in Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis. He created the Elastic theme framework and a WYSIWYG theme editor plugin as his student project with WordPress for Google Summer of Code 2009. Source: Meet the Speakers
With all our combined THOUGHTS – - FOCUSED IN ONE DIRECTION – ONE TARGET IN MIND -(call it prayer/whatever) – In one strong FORCE, WE ARE Calling all the DEVELOPERS TO PLEASE HELP OUT Daryl’s project! – CHARGE TO THE SPIRIT OF THE OPEN SOURCE MOVEMENT!
Hey Developers! – HE NEEDS YOUR HELP!
The Elastic Project FOR THE GOOD OF ALL!
