WordPress 3

With a tingling head rush, I am very jolly happy to see that WordPress 3 has been released! In the words of WordPress:

“WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.”

One of the perceived problems of Free Software in the light of traditional market economics is that if it’s free, then it can’t be worth anything (the whole idea that scarcity increases value, so that pure gold is more valuable than clean air).

But from my eminently unbiased front-end developer perspective, I can tell you that the WordPress ‘User Experience’ is a joy and a blessing. Thank you, all of the WordPress team for a magnificent effort.

(You can set up your own web site for free at WordPress.com, which also uses version 3, and try it for yourself).

About Jake Rayson

A web designer since the 20th century, I am a pragmatic advocate of Free Software and I use proprietary software when appropriate. I made the full-time switch to Linux back in 2007, and my desktop tools of choice are Linux Mint, Inkscape, GIMP and Sublime Text.

As a Front End Developer, my core skills are HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery, and my working life reflects my commitment to open standards and accessible websites (ie accessible by everyone, regardless of browser, platform, ability or technology).

For web publishing platforms, I use WordPress for ease of use and Drupal for more complex solutions.

I am also learning about Ruby, Rails, Sinatra and CoffeeScript. I like the minimalist Ruby Way. To this end, my personal portfolio website is built with NestaCMS.
