WordCamp, the WordPress conference, continues today at 10 a.m. (which is in like 15 minutes so I better get going). You can read a writeup about it in today’s Gazette, or if you’re really interested, follow the WordCampMontreal-tagged Twitter updates and check out the photos in the Flickr pool.

Above is a photo of Matt Mullenweg, who’s one of many people behind WordPress (but certainly its most famous name). Everyone else in the room also took pictures (or video) of Matt. Or interviewed him.

Other WordCamp recaps

More to come as I find it.

Blog software upgrade

I just upgraded to WordPress 2.7, which has a whole new backend and some new features for comments. One is a reply feature, which allows you to respond to specific comments (I haven’t tested comment threading yet but hopefully it won’t explode). The other is comment paging, which will split comments to multiple pages when the discussion gets too much (ahem).

Let me know if you see any bugs as I’ve had to update the template myself.
