WordPress has an origin story, two people in different countries, looking to improve their open source blogging software, that evolved into thousands of people working on or with that software. But who we are, humans, our evolution has been driven by our ability to tell increasingly complex stories.

Storytelling is not just at the root of who we are — it is who we are.

In this talk we will remind ourselves of what a story is. Once we are clear on the difference between a story and a statement, we will explore what understanding our stories means for us, as bloggers, business people and developers working in an open source ecosystem.
