WordPress creator Mullenweg is many bloggers’ best friend
            By Jefferson Graham, USA TODAY
            SAN FRANCISCO — While still in high school in Texas, Matt Mullenweg created blogging software he hoped would be easier and prettier to use. Less than six years later, Mullenweg’s WordPress has become the No. 2 blogging platform behind Google’s Blogger, signing up 10,000 new bloggers daily.

            WordPress has become so entrenched on the Web that many of the biggest names use it now — a roster that includes CNN, Fox News and The New York Times, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Coca-Cola and General Electric, along with millions of ordinary bloggers.

            “People might start with LiveJournal or Blogger, but if they get serious, they’ll graduate to WordPress. We try to cater to the more powerful users,” says Mullenweg, 25.

  — where folks sign up to create their blogs — was the 37th-most-visited site in December, attracting 24 million visitors, according to measurement firm ComScore Media Metrix. Worldwide, WordPress hosts 12 million blogs, which attracted just over 200 million readers in December.

            WordPress is free for anyone to use on their own. Business customers who want technical support pay $2,500 to $5,000 a year through Automattic, the start-up Mullenweg founded in 2005 to operate WordPress. Automattic also offers fee-based anti-spam software services.

            WordPress is “open-source” software, which means that anyone can access and contribute to the program code, with plug-ins and downloads that can take a WordPress blog to new heights. Examples include ways to add contact forms, reader statistics, comment spam filters and “page-flip” photo galleries to your blog.

            It was the open-source approach that persuaded Danny Sullivan, who runs the Search Engine Land website, to switch recently to the WordPress platform from rival Movable Type, which is owned by Six Apart.

            So many of Search Engine Land’s editors and programmers preferred working with WordPress, “that it just made it easier,” Sullivan says.

            Software has a big fan: CNN

            CNN runs 30 blogs, and they’re all created the same way the general consumer does it: Programmers go to, sign up and create.

              …Brown is surging in the polls because he has promised to deprive congressional Democrats of the 60th Senate vote they need to pass the final health care bill. The Democrats’ response has been to do something that will make the American people so livid they will resolve to cast the Democratic Party into political exile for at least another decade…

              In an interview with Esquire magazine, Lou Dobbs once again defends his repeated requests for President Obama’s birth certificate, calling it a “commonsense question” that has “been used in the extreme left to create a toxicity that is just unbelievable.” In an interview headlined “What I’ve Learned,” Dobbs once again lashes out at people who have criticized his insistence that Obama’s birth certificate is unsatisfactory: I ask a question, and I am attacked from the extreme left as a quote-unquote birther. I mean, what the hell is that? When you can create a controversy by asking what seems to me…

              The Western Center for Journalism ^ | 1-12-10 | Steve Baldwin
              This lenghty Report by Steve Baldwin is well worth the read… Is Obama Stupid and Lazy? Although that’s quite a provocative question, evidence is mounting that Obama may not be as intelligent as his supporters and cheerleaders in the media constantly assure us. The reality may be that Obama is mostly a creation of the liberal media. Indeed, the more we dig into his past, the more we find very little substance and discover how a network of liberal professors, law firms, and others, gave him a pass on performance while he pursued his political agenda. We know very little…

              Examiner ^ | 01/13/10 | Michael Barone
              You’ve probably already seen the report of Weekly Standard writer John McCormack on how he was pushed to the sidewalk outside a Washington fundraiser by a Coakley aide who, it appears, was Michael Meehan, a longtime aide to and spokesman for Democratic candidates and officeholders. The Associated Press, fronting for the Coakley campaign, has a different take: McCormack stumbled and Meehan tried to help him get up. Take a look at the photo and video in McCormack’s posts and see who you believe—the reporter who was actually there or the reporter who evidently talked to his pal Meehan on the…
