Implications of WordPress & Block Protocol
There was a splash around the web a few weeks back when fabled software opiner and creator Joel Spolsky (Trello, Stack Overflow) announced the Block Protocol effort. I have to admit I noticed it but didn’t really dig into what it’d do.
That’s where this piece from Leonardo Losoviz over at Smashing Mag comes in. Because he basically builds up from this idea and the subsequent agreement from WordPress honcho Matt Mullenweg to the spirit of this notion. I’m always ready for the geeky excitement and this post packs it in spades.
I’ll admit I still don’t fully understand how these things all fit together. But if you’re interested in understanding better, this article did help me start to get why this would be both interesting and fun.
