Yesterday I got this notification from Matt, that WordPress.com owner company Automattic now the owner of WP.com. He posted in his blog about this acquisition. It's great to know that they could come to an understanding with Yahoo guys.
Now Matt throughs out that domain to us about what to do with it now, but in this meantime, wp.com is now redirected to wordpress.com.
Here is My Plan about what to do with wp.com
#Start a classy email service, you could offer free email service to those who already have wordpress.com account with that username.
#Make an all-in-one WordPress and Automattic portal on its homepage. Like, make a platform, a single platform so people could access email, wordpress.com account, Infos, and all link + download section of wordpress.org.
# Also on home page an easy to access all other stuff from Automattic, like BuddyPress, bbPress, and all other projects.
# Extended the news section, with something like news.wp.com and post exclusive news not only directly related to WordPress but also about this internet industries. We could also make something like which could grab buzzing news from our whole network of wordpress.com, I think there might be some legal way to do this as like google doing worst with its news section.
And any more suggested, 😀 I also had some more tips to give, but time is short now, it's already 04:52 AM here.
But if you people agree and our goal is projected, I think we could try to compete with the internet king with this wp.com itself.
