Community Interview with John James Jacoby on BuddyPress, bbPress, and social

12

Believe it or not, I have never — ever — properly interview John James Jacoby, also know as JJJ or J-trip. John is the lead developer on the BuddyPress and bbPress projects, and has been working for Automattic since November 2010. In this interview we talk about the futures of both BuddyPress and bbPress, or “the bbs”, his slew of old jobs, and something called a Faquith.

You’ve been warned.

Community Interview with Lance Willett about commercial themes on WordPress.com

February makes 12 months since commercial (or “premium”) themes were introduced on WordPress.com. I spoke with Lance Willett last year about the announcement, and thought it only proper to sit down and speak with him about it again.

This interview was included, edited for time, in the second half of WPCandy Podcast #31. The full interview is just under an hour long.
