Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Pitfalls of a Popular Project

My presentation for WordCamp Birmingham 2010 was on the Pitfalls of a Popular Project. This is a non-technical talk, and it is not specific to WordPress (though I use WordPress as an example in a couple of places).

You can download the PowerPoint version of my presentation, which should include my notes for more information.

    Loved that “spammer” picture on slide 10.  I like those “#protip”s in your twitter stream too.  Consider that appropriated.

    Hello Dougal, great presentation!A few days ago I wrote a post regarding open-source and money (in the context of an FOSS community I am part of, but also relevant generally).Lorelle already commented, and I do hope you might be willing to join the conversation:http://www.r-statistics.com/2010/09/open-source-and-money-%e2%80%93-why-paying-r-developers-might-not-always-help-the-project/Cheers,Tal
