Not much is known about MassivePress. A teaser site went up a few months ago, and the MassivePress Twitter account tends to link up WordPress stuff intermittently, but not much more than that. The word on the street (or on Twitter) is that the kimono will be opened, so to speak, and the project itself will be fully revealed at WordCamp Phoenix this coming weekend.
A number of high-profile WordPress folks are a part of MassivePress: Lisa Sabin-Wilson (of WordPress for Dummies fame), Grant Griffiths (of Headway), Cory Miller (iThemes), Carl Hancock (Gravity Forms), Jason Schuller (Press75 and Theme Garden) and Michael Torbert (All in One SEO). We know who they are, of course. But exactly what they are up to: no one really knows.
We’ll find out this weekend at WordCamp Phoenix, and you can bet that WPCandy will be first on top of it with the full story.
But let’s have some fun with this, aye? Launches, and more specifically mystery, is always fun to play around with.
Share your best guess about what MassivePress will be in the comments, and the closest person to the real deal will receive their choice of an item from the WordPress Swag Store. If someone nails it, the coveted swag will go to the first person to guess correctly. Otherwise we’ll use our best judgment to pick the guess closest to the truth.
My guess: WordPress for tall people. You don’t realize just how persecuted those folks are, particularly on the web. If you think blind people have it rough online, then you have no idea. Most websites are optimized for people five, maybe six feet tall. There are people all over the world well beyond six feet in height, and how do you think they enjoy the web? Exactly. It’s about time someone did something for those web users. Although, I’m not sure the name the MassivePress team chose is the most kind way to label their target market.
Yup, I’m good at this guessing thing. Your turn. What will MassivePress be?
