This requires at least 9 viewings in order to realize its genius:
I hate to say it, but they’re likely to lose a mint on this idea.
This Google Instant video
made me think of the following Weird Al video:
Excellent. Just don’t try to hit the website mentioned at the end of the video — looks like the DNS registration expired and a pharma scammer/spammer took it over…
Count with me, please, exactly how many truly, deeply geeky things are incredibly right about this piece.

Bonnie Vasko has already posted a brief summary of Wednesday night’s “inaugural” Philly WordPress Meetup, so I thought I’d simply take a moment to document some of the resources we talked about in the “advanced”/developer session. Hopefully some of the other attendees will find them useful.
We talked briefly about
- Free theme frameworks/parent themes, such as Thematic, Twenty Ten and Hybrid
- Commercial theme frameworks such as Genesis, Headway and the Woothemes offerings
- Hooks and filters and their uses in a custom theme (see here for a nifty app outlining all the hooks in WordPress)
- Justin Tadlock and Ian Stewart as must-reads for theming information in general
- Parent and child themes* (separate links!)
- Securing your WordPress installations
- Selling your WordPress themes
- e-commerce using WordPress and, potentially, Magento
- Caching using WP Super Cache, though I have recently taken to using a combination of Hyper Cache and DB Cache Reloaded
- WP Tavern, the WP.org forums and #wordpress/#wordpress-dev on freenode as destinations for those seeking more online WordPress community opportunities
I’m sure there are some other things I’m forgetting to mention, so if anyone has anything more to contribute (or further questions), please just drop a comment.
I’m looking forward to the next meetup!
