  1. It would be nice if you could put timing stamps

    Like…
    00:00 Intro
    01:25 WP Release Date…
    25:00 Matt Mullenweg Addresses…
    40:15 WP GDRP….

    And so forth. What if I am interested in the WP GDPR thin and not the two before?

    Just a suggestion, I am still going to listen to WPWeekly.

    1. Hmm, the thing is, Google Hangouts doesn’t have a timer, so it’s difficult to know what time a subject is brought up. It’s doable for the YouTube Video. I’ll look into it.

  2. Great episode. I think it is worth asking these questions about Gutenberg both in terms of the process and the end product.

    It’s worth noting that Gutenberg is not going live on WordPress.com right away. In other words, those customers are in for a softer landing, despite that fact the the existence of Gutenberg is partially to help that service compete with other popular hosted CMS’s.

    Mark my words, I suspect that Automattic/WordPress is going to learn an awful lot about it’s customer base very soon.

    Audio improved, thanks for your efforts!
