Recently, Skippy summed-up quite nicely the building frustration in the WP community. Mine has been growing along a similar path and, after voicing my concerns a few times last year, I eventually decided to save me the time and energy and silently started shifting out most of my WP-related activities. Like Skippy, I take issues with the way WP development is “managed”, I also have serious concerns about the increased melting of public open-source code with semi-private interests, as reflected by the blatantly commercial marketing strategies of recent releases. Don’t get me wrong: I am not one of those open-source zealots who considers it a crime for software authors to make a dime off their work, I just do not like the way it’s done here.
On a wider scale, I guess I am getting tired of the whole “Web 2.0″ micro-bubble, the underwhelmingly banal concepts it rests on and the mix of greed and naive enthusiasm that propels it.
