Help Name the Next WordPress Version

Ryan and Matt are having a debate. What to call the next version of WordPress. Most of you know it as WordPress 1.6 – subject to change – but they also add a nickname to the versions based upon famous Jazz artists.

So far the list has included Miles Davis, Art Blakely, Charles Mingus, and Billy Strayhorn (my fav). The names up for debate are Eric Dolphy, Stan Getz, Lennie Tristano, John Coltrane, and Thelonius Monk.

To lend your opinion, and read about the history of these choices, check out Ryan Boren’s The Music of WordPress – Choosing the Next WordPress Version Name.

Me? I’d pick Dolphy as he doesn’t get the claim to fame he deserves. But then, I do like Getz and Monk. Hmmm. What do you think? Who deserves to be named after one of the hottest versions of WordPress yet?

    Coltrane would be a good choice. Just because I’m a massive fan of his music 😉

    For WordPress, though, as blogging is all about words, how about naming after a singer? It could be named Fitzgerald, Holliday, Armstrong.

    Or if you definitely want top soloists – how about Ornette Coleman, the man who broke down barriers with the Free Jazz LP?
