Read We Called it Gutenberg for a Reason by Matt Mullenweg (ma.tt)
Movable type was about books, but it wasn‚Äôt just about books. Ideas spread. Literacy spiked. The elite monopoly on education and government started to crack. Luther‚Äôs 95 Theses were printed a press, rocking Europe, and he issued ‚Äúbroadsheets.‚ÄĚ Broadsheets became newspapers; newspapers enabled democracy. The printing press ushered in social, political, and economic sea changes. Gutenberg changed everything. WordPress has always been about websites, but it‚Äôs not just about websites. It‚Äôs about freedom, about possibility, and about carving out your own livelihood, whether it‚Äôs by making a living through your site or by working in the WordPress ecosystem itself. We‚Äôre democratizing publishing ‚ÄĒ and democratizing work ‚ÄĒ for everyone, regardless of language, ability, or economic wherewithal.
