More Contests Over wordpress.com invites

When a friend of mine announced he was putting his wordpress.com invite on ebay, I thought it was marvelous. And then I laughed when someone else started a competition to estimate the final bid for the ebay invite, and now Matt Mullenweg has started to heat things up with another competition. The best comment on why someone deserves a wordpress.com invite on his site in the next 12 hours…counting down….done… will be given an invite to wordpress.com.

He’s gotten 79 comments to pick a winner or two from.

Now, what I think should happen next is that he do this again, but then we all get to vote on who we think is the most deserving to win a wordpress.com invite. After all, his is just one opinion, and the masses need a vote. ;-)

Ah, WordPress democracy.

    This one of the problems associated with no-edit Themes and I’ll be posting an article about this in the next day or so – stay tuned.

  1. […] I could blog about the next release of WordPress 1.5.2, and ongoing development on WordPressMU, which later became WordPress MS. I could help web designers working on WordPress Themes for WordPressMU and make jokes about all the buzz about the new WordPress.com, and the silliness of selling WordPress.com invites on ebay. […]
