BuddyPress News

One of my favorite WordPress projects out there has been the BuddyPress project – focused on turning WordPress MU into a full fledged social network platform ( more info here ).

Today we announced that Andy Peatling, who created BuddyPress, has joined our Automattic team. In addition, the BuddyPress project will become an Automattic project, much as we’ve done with WordPress, bbPress, Gravatar, and Akismet.
