The platform has evolved in the past decade from being a basic blogging service to something that has helped people and brands become more social and changed how we communicate on the Web.

Bloggers who use WordPress are able to apply design themes to their sites while also integrating third-party plugins easily. Since it’s open source software, there isn’t a need for an approval process before someone can implement a new feature.
As of this writing, the latest version of WordPress has been downloaded more than 21 million times.
Has it already been a decade?
For Mullenweg, hitting the decade mark was a bit startling for him. In a blog post, he waxed nostalgia about the platform he helped create:
Has it really been 10 years? It seems just yesterday we were playing around on my blog, and the blogs of a few high school friends. Two of those friends are married, one isn’t anymore, two are still figuring things out, and one has passed away.
You were cute before you became beautiful. Wearing black and white, afraid of color, trying to be so unassuming. I know you got jealous when I wore those Blogger t-shirts. They were the cool kids at SxSW and I thought maybe you could grow up to be like them.
You wouldn’t have shirts of your own for a few more years. We didn’t know what we were doing when we made them and the logo printed ginormous. People called them the Superman shirt and made fun of them. But, oh, that logo — the curves fit you so well.
WordPress emerged onto the scene when users had the option of posting their thoughts on services like Xanga, LiveJournal, MySpace, and Blogger. One difference between all of these other systems and WordPress was the option for users to simply download the platform and install it right onto their own servers. With this self-hosted model, Mullenweg managed to help make it more accessible and flexible for not only users, but for businesses who wanted more control.

Hace algunos días les presentamos una lista con algunas alternativas a los mensajeros instantáneos más populares, Windows Live Messenger y Gtalk –también conocido de forma pedestre como “el chat de Google”-. Pero el Mac tiene su propio universo y también otras alternativas de mensajeros. Además de iChat, el que viene de forma nativa cuando prendemos por primera vez el ordenador apenas salido de su hermoso packaging, tenemos otras opciones para instalar. A continuación, vamos a repasar las mejores alternativas a mensajeros instantáneos para Mac OS X.
Para trabajar de forma profesional en un proyecto, muchas veces necesitamos algo más que una lista de tareas, y es el momento de buscar una solución en software, tanto si es un trabajo que vamos a llevar a cabo solos como si hay otras personas en el equipo. Si los clientes son varios, entonces ya es imprescindible encontrar algún buen programa de gestión de proyectos, estable pero también flexible. Los programas desoftware libre son ideales porque además de ser potentes, cuentan detrás con una comunidad de desarrolladores y pueden hacernos ahorrar bastante en costos.
