WordPress’ biggest challenge over the next two years, and where we’re focusing core development, will be around evolving our dashboard to be faster and more accessible, especially on touch devices. Many of our founding assumptions about how, where, and why people publish are shifting, but the flexibility of WordPress as a platform and the tens of thousands of plugins and themes available are hard to match. We might not always be the platform people start with, but we want to be what the best graduate to.

While browsing around the archive of WordPress.org, I came across a blog post from 2004 where Matt Mullenweg describes WordPress having multi-blog capabilities. He also mentions at the end of the blog post about how the server has been up and down with a description of a long term solution. So without further adieu.
To make a very long and frustrating story short: there were problems due in part to the recent popularity of WordPress. They should be fixed for now, but a long-term solution is needed. This will probably come in the form of a Server Drive, where we all drive out to the server and kick it until it works.
I’ve created a brand new category on the site called Quotes. I think that quotes sometimes deserve a post of their own and as I come across note worthy quotes from across the WordPress community, I’ll be publishing them here for me to look back on.
By the way, hope Matt still has that sense of humor from 2004.
