I am speaking at WordCamp Colombo this year. My topic is “Making Millions in WordPress Plugin Business Without Being Evil“. Here I will share my slides and all resource after the event. If you are interested keep an eye on this page.
Medium is easy, I like that. But when they went too far in trying to break the market by bribing brands and trying to brand in a way that its better solution than WordPress, thats when it was not this simple. Medium is a hosted solution, could be comparable to hosted WordPress like WordPress.com or many others, but not the WordPress solution. To grow their brand and portray themself as better content solution they started to bring big publisher, and there are numerous report how they bribed brands, if those brand move from WordPress! Now they are in odd situation. All the people they hired to sustain that growth, are now out of jobs, they fired 50 employees, and shutting down 2 offices. Ev Willams accepting that the main industry that they want to improve, they have not got full grasp of that, and feels, its time to stop that and look back.
Understanding you product placement, and not overdoing is very crucial.
WordPress 4.6 is now released for millions of website. And I helped subtitling it's Introductory Video in my language, Bangla!

You could surely ask, why anybody wants to install WordPress in a 12 years old $25 tiny router. But if you are crazy enough this article is an epic one. You don't even need MySQL, it usage SQLite in a USB Storage. This is surely one of the science project type experiment. But you could surely use this for other useable case to run WordPress under 64MB RAM.
Writing is very important. Its effective, it has long lasting effects. I hate phone call, as I find it's over-rated, it obviously has lots of use, but its counter productive in many case.
And now in the year 2016, its so easy to write. Write for yourself, take a piece of paper, open up a notes, or Evernote. If you are ready to write for others, start a blog, and WordPress make it very easy for anybody, does not even cost a dime to start.
I am looking from another side. A community that old (11 years now), and this big, bunch of things is bound to happen.
Just to give a simple idea, for a guy who is in this community for say for 6 years, he always thinks in himself, he knows this community, he fell very close to it, and eventually that started him give a kind superior (maybe wrong word, can't find the better one ATM) attitude. He started to think he owns something, he has to have a say in everything about this community under his radar. And that goes same for a guy who is in community for 2 or even for entire 11 years.
So, maybe for others like you and me, he does not mean much, or maybe to him, we don't mean much. But we all have a say, we all have got an attitude, we all think we know this better, and we are the ultimate bricks that makes this community.
You see, thats where democratization should take effect. It always should be beyond us. There is always a greater rest. When you build something that big, defining, even its beyond the founder, beyond the core people behind. Yes, its all important. Some stuff are the key to the project, some are the souls, but end of the day its about people. This #Drama is what we create, we, the so called *Expert.
And yes, please criticize me as I call myself *(WordPress Enthusiast)!
