WordPress, the popular blogging (and more) platform, is 10 years old today. This great piece by Ken Yeung plots the rise of the open source service.
I’ve used WordPress for about four years now and it’s proved itself to be an extremely capable, flexible and versatile CMS. If you’re looking at the service’s reach, note that this site runs on WordPress, as does my blog, as well as sites such as The Next Web, TechCrunch and The Loop. That’s a pretty full spectrum of small scale, medium scale and large scale sites all served by the same platform.
Ken’s piece is well worth a read.
