My wife runs a book club. For the past five years on the first Friday of the month she and her friends meet at a local restaurant during dinner time to discuss a book. She always comes home from book club energized by the kid-free time discussing interesting books.
Whenever my wife meets a lady for the first time she’ll ask the question “Do you read fiction?” I’ve seen her do it many times. The question evokes one of two responses. The first response is an emphatic “Yes!” followed by the person listing out the current and recent books she’s read. The second response is a sheepish “No” followed by an excuse.
To say there’s a lot of growth and opportunity around WordPress is an understatement. Every time a WordCamp puts up a (physical) job board it’s soon covered with names of companies that are looking to grow their ranks of designers, developers, writers and project people. Often the board is overwhelmed by the number of listings and represents a crowded stock exchange floor with a sea of people clamoring for attention.
When I was a kid summers meant that my sister and I would be hanging out at home. We were old enough to be left alone, but not yet old enough to drive a car. To pass the time we had a schedule of TV shows we watched and one of them was The Price is Right. We’d watch Bob Barker host the show in his dapper suit while the fervent sea of screaming contestants flowed around him.
