    The future of WordPress look excellent. WP foundation is so strong and flexible it will always be a major player.

    Great session Matt. Having had a similar town hall Q & A style presentation at WordCamp New Zealand a couple of months ago I think this is a great format and while I still look forward to the “State of the Word” presentation I’m happy for that to be a WordCamp San-Fransisco/WordCamp TV experience.

    Hey Matt. Could you share how to handle your nightly updates to WordPress using Subversion? I consider myself fairly well versed in SVN, yet I never found a good way to have my custom theme versioned while also being able to update WordPress (svn:externals wouldn’t work with the default directory structure).

    Someone SERIOUSLY should have normalized the audio the audio swings between quiet and really really loud.

    Matt taking a shot at Blackboard was classic! Hopefully something like Google Wave will take the place of the old and busted Blackboard.
