[Jason] – Hey, what's up everyone, this is Jason Tucker and this is WPwatercooler, episode number 164. Today's topic is the New WordPress.com. Let's go around the room real quick and get everyone introduced. We have almost a full cast and crew here. We got nine folks. George, tell us a little about yourself.
[George] – Hi, my name is George Stephanis, I work on Core and I work at Automattic. I didn't have that much to do with the new WordPress.com admin interface, but I'm a regular here, so I like to show up and shoot my mouth off, anyways. Also, Happy Blue Beanie Day, everybody.
[Steve] – A happy what?
[George]- Happy Blue Beanie Day for web standards.
[Steve] – I heard a Happy Belinia Day.
[Jason] – No, in other news.
[Russ] – I thought he was talking about alcohol and doing belinis.
[Se] – I don't even know what you people are talking about.
[Jason] – Folks, we got nine people to get through, Jason Cosper, tell us about yourself.
[Cosper] – Hey, I'm Jason, I'm the developer advocate over at WP Engine, and I'll let someone else go.
[Jason] – Awesome.
[Jason] – Kevin.
[Kevin] – I am Kevin, I am a designer at Automatic, and I did work on WP Calypso for the past 20 months or so.
[Se] – Oh my God.
[Kevin] – You'll answer any questions, or if you hate it, then I'll just log off or something.
[Steve] – Just like Kevin, act like there's technical problems and just quit.
[Jason] – Yep, yep.
[Jason] – Sorry, you're breaking up.
[Kevin] – Yeah, yeah, the microphone.
[Se] – I'll just sign off right now.
[Steve] – What?
[Jason] – So tell us about yourself, Robert.
[Robert] – Oh, good, my name's Robert Dall, I'm a WordPress designer in Vancouver, Canada, and I really need a haircut right now.
[Se] – That is relevant information.
[Jason] – Russ.
[George] – How is your dating life?
[Russ] – Hey, my name is Russ, lead organizer of WordCamp Vegas, and I feel like we took Apocalypse Now and the Mel Gibson movie Apocalypto and we put them together and made Calypso.
[Steve] – How long have you been working on that line?
[Russ] – All week.
[Russ] 30 seconds.
[Se] All week.
