How WordPress’ awesomeness fooled me today

This morning I was wondering how many other people might think if the soon to be released WordPress 3.5 would get the codename “Brubeck” after Dave Brubeck’s passing earlier this week.

So I did a quick Twitter search to check this but I kept seeing results only matching “Brubeck”, “WordPress” was nowhere to be seen. I double checked everything, I even started thinking that Twitter search might be broken.

And then it hit me. All the tweets I was seeing had a link in them from the wp.me domain and were resolving to a WordPress.com blog. I was looking for a quick answer to a silly question and instead I was pleasantly reminded by how many people use WordPress. Now, that is awesome!
