Exploring the Power of Voice in Blogging at Wordcamp Boston

This past weekend we headed to Boston to hang out at Microsoft Research (lovingly called the NERD Center, for New England Research and Development) on the M.I.T. campus at Wordcamp Boston, and meet the passionate people gathering to learn and share their skills around WordPress.

WordPress is a powerful content management and blogging platform created by Automattic, with a highly active developer community focused on improving WordPress.org, the open source version, and building themes, plugins and other productivity tools for content publishers.

Talking Twilio & the Future of Voice in Blogs on the Unconference Track
