I was invited to talk for 10 minutes to the local WordPress group in NYC. A video of my talk is now available on YouTube:
Though our first site (WP Questions) was focused on WordPress, we hope our customers will soon develop hundreds of sites focused on many different things. But since our WordPress site was our first, it best illustrates the potential of what we hope others will be able to do.
Funny story: I had assumed that I would be talking to a room full of computer programmers, so for all day, as I prepared my remarks, I imagined saying them to a highly technical audience. Only when I got there, and Steve opened the meeting by taking a survey of the audience, did I realize the room was 80% people who had just started using WordPress. On the spur of the moment I tried to re-gear my pitch to a non-technical crowd. In that, I think I was only half successful.
