WordPress 3.6 will see some visual improvement on the admin side of things like for instance the Post Format UI is up for a change, but there’s more in the works. Right now there’s a ticket on Trac getting some attention regarding new icons. So, if you want your designer / UI voice to be heard, go make yourself be heard and comment on this trac ticket.
So what happens if you mix WordPress with Eminem lyrics featuring Dre? No, not that Dre, this Dre. This has to be the best WordPress rap ever. By possibly by the best Dre there is.
If you own a WordPress business, the event to go to last year was PressNomics. In case you missed it and were sad about that – I sure was – it’s good to know there will be a second one.
It’s official. Planning is underway for PressNomics 2.0.
The idea of PressNomics is simple: Get the movers and shakers of the WordPress economy in the same physical place and bring in amazing business focused speakers to share their experience, add in some ample social time and see what happens.

Our very own Siobhan just released a post on Smashing Magazine offering advise to anyone beginning in the WordPress Community. Or in her own words:
This article is a result of their insight, and I hope that it provides some encouragement and guidance to newbies — whether you’re a user or a developer — as well as some tips for advanced WordPress users who continue to learn throughout their lives.

Whenever someone writes a paragraph like that and is talking about WordCamps & GPL, you know there will be an interesting debate going on in the comments.
Should this just be between the Foundation / WordCamp and Envato or is the current ruling correct?
I was going to write an introduction to this post, but I think Dougal kinda nailed it with his own intro:
Herein is a cautionary tale about automated cross-posting between different social networking web services.
One of the WordPress features we use a lot here on WP Realm are the post formats. However, we do not use it in its default way, we use it the Alex King way.
So with that in mind it’s quite exciting to see WordPress 3.6 will have a strong focus on the Post Formats UI in general. Aaron Campbell writes:
Post formats is going to be a major win for 3.6. It’s one of those features that has so much potential, but it really falls short in usability and honestly we haven’t really taken the time to truly show what it can do. We’re going to re-think the admin UI for post formats
