Scott Berkun will talk about the future of WordPress at the WordCamp San Francisco 2010. He is asking for suggestions on things to talk so if you have any ideas head here. On the other hand, you can read upon my suggestions there or here:
1) Keep the Simplicity – My greatest fear with WordPress is that people won’t stop adding more things to it. I like its smallness. The merging of WordPress MU in the upcoming 3.0 version is just one example of the unnecessary growing complexity of the WordPress code base.
2) Be more Open – Automattic keeps control of the only official plugin repository and WordPress only works with it. Reminds me of the Apple App Store and I for sure don’t want anything like that for WordPress.
