Source: Are You Affected By WordPress Calypso? | PJ Brunet | LinkedIn

Brunet thinks it’s not going to affect free WP users. Maybe.

What would, I think, be a radical move, would be to recreate the PHP model with node.js.

That is, rather like VB.NET embedded VB and JSP embedded Java in HTML templates, to have a simple persistent node server, loading up Javascript embedded within HTML pages. Purists would gag, of course, at violating the separation of concerns, but this would make it MUCH easier for people to port their PHP applications over to a node world.

Perhaps someone like Zend should be leading this. A next-generation, node-based server, which allowed embedded javascript as an alternative to PHP at the back-end.

Did WordPress just translate itself to node.js?

Big question, will they also open-source this code-base for users to host on their own sites? If so, this is probably the beginning of the end for PHP? WP is certainly the only PHP application I run. And probably the most widely used PHP program in the wild. (Not counting FB here.)

If they aren’t going to open-source it, is this the beginning of the end for WordPress as the world’s most popular Open Source social-software? Is WordPress.com going to try to turn itself into a more closed, “gated” community? With new features only available to users hosting within it? Is it going to become more like Tumblr … or Medium or even FB?

Update : It’s all open-sourced.

Radio3 has a philosophy.

I’m almost ready to start playing with it. Just have to figure out where / how to host the result. Will almost certainly be a WordPress blog.

Will I use it for Smart Disorganized though? One issue with radio3 currently is that it only seems to be connectable to one WordPress. What if I have several?
