    Isn’t it interesting that when you read about the history of WordPress today, you can see which points throughout the life if WordPress were pivotal in it’s growth. If something else happened during one of those pivotal points, would WordPress be what it is today? Would WordPress even exist? It’s like the butterfly effect. Who knows what would have happened had Textpattern been GPL2 at the time Matt discovered it. Or, who knows how popular WordPress would become had MovableType not made such a licensing blunder. Or what about the time Matt almost pulled the trigger on an acquisition offer but at the last minute, turned it down to stay independent.

    It’s fun to think about the alternative outcomes if one of those moments happened differently then they did.
