While I am a strong supporter of WordPress over Serendipity – and please don’t ask me for particulars at this point, but I’ve tried them both and I like WordPress best – I admire Serendipity because its development team consists of some of the more well-known names in the PHP community: Sterling Hughes, George Schlossnagle, Wez Furlong, and Sebastian Bergmann to name a few.
Parsons could’ve elected to use any number of popular blogging software out there, software that executives and celebrities tend to pick such as Movable Type, TypePad, Blosxom, and Blogger. Instead, he chose a PHP application, and the PHP community is all the better for it.
Way to go, Bob Parsons! Way to go.
