Slides from my WordCamp Boston 2012 talk on Why the @#!!@ isn’t WordPress a CMS:
Obviously it’ll be more useful once the video is posted, for those of you who weren’t there – I’ll add that as soon as it’s available.

This weekend Boston lives up to its reputation as a strong city for open source CMS activities, with both WordCamp Boston 2012 and Design for Drupal 4 in the same weekend.

WordCamp Boston 2012 is coming up quickly: July 13th-15th, at the Boston University George Sherman Union (same venue as 2011).
I’ll be speaking again, this time on the topic of “Why the #@*$!% isn’t WordPress a CMS?.” Why is it that WordPress doesn’t get the respect it deserves in discussions of Web Content Management platforms? How do we counter the age-old “WordPress is fine if all you need is a blog” back-handed insult?
On the other hand, are there things that WordPress could learn from the criticism? What could WordPress do as a project to make the WordPress-as-a-CMS conversation more productive and less repetitive? Where does WordPress’ blog-platform heritage show up as an architectural weakness when held up against other WCMS platforms?
Looking forward to yet another fabulous WordCamp on the Charles . . . Hope to see you there.

Here are the slides and speakerrate info for the talk I gave yesterday at WordCamp Boston.
Although the slides themselves are less entertaining without my voiceover, video from the talk will be made available – and I will link to it here as soon as I have the url.
