What does the future hold for WordPress, as a platform and as a community?
Will we see continued growth, from ~24% of the web to 50%? Will the REST API enable a whole new generation of powerful interfaces to content stored and managed by WordPress?

Will we all join hands and sing “I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony”?
