FYI...during the presentation today, Matt M from WordPress stated that WordPress.com will actually be completely free. Check out my post for some of the amazing WordPress.com features.

That's really cool, Neville.

I'm pretty sure they are offering WordPress MultiUser. Fill in two or three boxes in a form, click a button, get a password and login in the mail. Really easy interface. Check these two sites out:

Edublogs.org - James Farmer's free offering of blogs to educators: http://www.edublogs.org/

PRblogs.org - My class project offering free blogs to PR practitioners, educators and students: http://prblogs.org/

Both use WordPress MultiUser. I'm working with James to do the PRBlogs.org offering.

MultiUser is Alpha software, but - even so - it is fairly stable.



Thanks, guys. Interesting move into the hosting space. One other thought I had is re how Wordpress will support all this given the open source nature of their operation. Or maybe therein lies the answer. And if it's to be a free service?

Undoubtedly details will emerge soon enough.


With talk of the invites, it didn't take long for an invite for wordpress.com to be offered on ebay. Amazing.

WordPressMU should really challenge other blogging tools and get the competition going, so this announcement is very exciting. Not the ebay sale of the invite, but wordpress.com. ;-)
