1. It’s difficult to wonder what could have been, because without WordPress there wouldn’t have been certain innovations happening – but they could still have happened through other systems. So it’s questionable to wonder how big WP would become if it were a project starting out now instead of an existing project with it’s userbase and a bright horizon of rewrites and optimizations in future versions. I’d say the second isn’t the ideal option, but hey – everything starts somewhere.

  2. @Scott Kingsley Clark – I suppose in some ways, Habari could be looked at as WordPress starting over? Maybe that’s a stretch but that’s what I’ve heard quite a few times.

  3. A tool completely under your control has indeed a very high value. Agree with you that Matt hits the nail there.

    I also think that will be more and more apparent as many don´t reflect upon the control they let go to e.g. Facebook today. Third-party services are taken for granted by many and very few reflect upon what the TOCs really say…
