WPWeekly Episode 39 – Special Interview With Michael Pick

wordpressweekly1On the evening of Tuesday, January 27th, I had the pleasure to converse with Michael Pick, an employee of Automattic and also the guy behind the newly launched WordPress.TV. WordPress.TV is a new website which aggregates all sorts of WordPress content in video form. The site has already made a name for itself by showcasing many of the videos from recent WordCamps. Here is just a sampling of what we discussed during the show.

Here are some of the questions we covered on the show:

  1. What is the purpose of WordPress.TV?
  2. How did WordPress.TV reach fruition?
  3. Will WordPress.TV feature content created by people other than Automattic?
  4. What do you plan on doing with videos that seemingly disappear?
  5. Can someone suggest a video that is produced with a language other than English?
  6. If there were any plans to let the videos be downloadable or even a podcast?
  7. Are WordPress.tv videos released under the GPL? Would love to use this stuff for company training videos

Near the end of the show, I let my curiosity get the best of me.

Plug For A Podcast: Plugins Podcast is a podcast which aims to cover one WordPress plugin a week with occasional interviews of plugin developers as well as heavy plugin users. Episodes range between 10-15 minutes and are in mp3 format. Angelo already has a podcast available on the pluginspodcast.com website where he discusses the CForms2 Custom Forms plugin. So if you’re a plugin junkie, this sounds like the show for you.

Announcements: This Friday will be Keith Murray’s last episode as co-host of the show. Please stop by for the going away party as we send Keith off to greener pastures.
