Interview with P.J.:

Why do you use WordPress?
WordPress is a vital project in the open source movement and plays a significant role in free speech on the internet.

What do you like best about WordCamps?
I haven’t been to one yet, so I look forward to finding that out. 🙂

What is a common problem you see in WordPress sites, and how would you avoid it?
Performance and a slightly dated approach to building websites.

How do you stay up to date with new information about WordPress?
It’s not hard. There’s so much documentation and writing on the internet around just about every subject.
