3.) I am sure everyone has an opinion on where WordPress should head over the next year or two. What is your vision for WordPress (both .com and .org) and where do you see your biggest competition?
I would love for WordPress.org to have fewer options and a more streamlined administration, and a richer way to interact and update plugins and themes.
For [WordPress].com I’d like to see some really rich customization options and a lot more effort on the internationalization front, and to continue the lack of downtime we’ve been lucky enough to maintain. We’re also experimenting with some .com stuff that’s going to make it super-fast, but I can’t talk about that yet.
The biggest competition is probably Google’s Blogger. I don’t take competition too seriously, you have to do your own thing and not focus on other projects, but where services or features are particularly successful I have no problem examining them to find the underlying elements of coolness to consider integrating into WordPress.
