The inspiration for my post Burning Down the TV came from Jen Simmons presentation at Wordcamp New York last Sunday. The other speakers that day included Matt Mullenweg, co-developer of WordPress and a partner in Automatic, bloggers Aaron Brazell and Shay David, Jeremy Clarke on running a blog network, and Jen on WordPress and video.

If you’re curious about where WordPress is going in the next release (due out in November) and what else you can do with this CMS besides writing text-blogs you’re in luck: videos of Wordcamp NY are now online. Here’s the beginning of Matt Mullenweg’s introduction and below it, a link to videos of all of the presenters.
