WordPress by Refresh

wordpress-header

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Our speaker bailed at the last minute (as in the day of). Nevertheless, we intend to make some home-grown lemonade out of the sour circumstances and improvise a bit.

If you use WordPress and are willing to share, we will have a casual time of open mic (and open demo). If you have questions about WordPress, we will have a chance for others in the crowd to take a shot at answering them.

Sorry for the last-minute change. There is no longer a charge, and I will refund any pre-paid folks.

Thanks folks!

Thoughts on leadership

Hmm… I think I’d much rather touch the paper with my pencil. No?
