@jessedwilloughbyHardly a "rant"!  A solid perspective, although skewed (IMO) by the consideration that all companies should be like Apple - or have those kinds of budgets.   I can really appreciate your point of view - in fact I held stubbornly on to such ideas for a long time.  I have come to learn that people enjoy this type of interaction online and the "intrigue" provides a venue of natural stickiness.  

Timing is everything. If you've ever been involved in a major product release as a small company, you know the kind of stress and pressure these guys are under at the moment.  Just relax, enjoy the show and get to know some people - the product will be great!

@petenaotg Good choice.  No need to stir things up.  Pagelines' work stands apart and speaks for itself.  No need to fan the flames of contention.  Every industry has to have a leader and a maverick.  It is not surprising that people feel threatened by a template builder/manager for WordPress as many make a living off that sort of thing.  But, if they understood the concept in its fullest, they would consider it an advantage (as it truly will be for all who use it)

@longe630 True! True!  I've been building sites since 1995 and this industry has always been "if you're sick for a week, you might as well get a new career" type of thing.  I love that PageLines keeps adding the newest and greatest tech to keep us on our toes :)

@Tang@clixbits - Totally dig the morphic fields reference!  Showing anyone anything proprietary (particularly in the OpenSource community - of which we are all a part as we play together in the WordPress sandbox) is a bad idea without a carefully crafted NDA (non-disclosure agreement)... That's the real answer.

LOL! Nice exchange.  However, I assure you Andrew that (as an active WPMU member since 2010 and an avid PageLines fanatic/developer) you have absolutely nothing to worry about.  You are light years ahead of WPMU in terms of functionality, quality, design and standards of coding.  They will never catch up (in my opinion).

Don't get me wrong, many of the products that WPMU offers can't be found anywhere else and they have a great community.  Nonetheless, it is obvious that 95% of what they offer are stripped-down, often buggy tools and templates that they previously developed for Edublogs.   You guys on the other hand are the "real deal" with your silicone valley swank and all :)

You've got my vote all day long.  They would have to hire three of me and ignore everything else on their plate just to compete in the PageLines arena.   Keep up the great work.  We are all looking forward to this release!!!!

I really enjoyed writing this blog.  I hope that it can help to put a new perspective on things.  2013 is just beginning and we have a bunch of work to do together.  I'm excited to see what you do with MonsterCashSsystem!!

 @GrantBarrett Worth every penny!  I can assure you of that (from experience)! I've been a web developer since 1995 and using WordPress for over three years.  What PageLines offers is simply unmatched by a wide margin. And, they keep on expanding options, libraries and support.  You cannot loose with this subscription!
