WordPress leads pack of Pacemaker finalists picked. 53% of the finalists for this year’s online Pacemaker awards are running WordPress. That’s pretty cool. The numbers are even higher for smaller schools with less than 10,000 student enrollments. It’s great to see my alma mater in the list of finalists, too.
From the always good Seth Godin:
Isn’t it odd that were willing to spend $300,000 to buy an accredited but ultimately useless academic line on our resume, but we hesitate to do a month of hard work to create a chunk of experience thats priceless?
This is the whole reason why I got involved with CoPress. Even when I wasn’t an actual team member it was fun work that taught me invaluable lessons about the web, college media, and small companies. I wouldn’t trade it for a thing.
