WordPress March 2009 Wrap-Up

Impressive numbers from WordPress.com: 827 terabytes of data, 400.000 new users, 7 million logins, 1 billion of pageviews.

From March Wrap-Up, written by Matt Mullenweg:

In March we brought you P2, an awesome theme perfect for short-form and group blogging, made with love by Automatticians. Next, version 1.21 of the WordPress for iPhone apphit the iTunes Store. To wrap up the month, we celebrated the opening of our new Automattic office space in SOMA. It turned out to be a pretty fantastic party. See if you can spot the point where we ran out of cups.
