I came across this story in my Twitter feed:
Nice to see WordPress making advances in the media world. If I'm not mistaken, Mashable and TechCrunch are on WP. Anyone know other major media outlets that run their sites on WordPress?
Thanks for the share. Yes, both Mashable and TechCrunch are on WP.
In aggregate Cheezburger network which operates entirely on WordPress accounts for 10% of ALL WP traffic.
@Jon: Nice comment. That list of Automattic's VIP clients was exactly I was looking for! It will be really useful for when I talk up WordPress to skeptical clients.
"Isn't WordPress mainly for blogging? I want to launch a news website."
"CNN uses WordPress for a bunch of their sites."
"Oh. Well, if it's good enough for CNN, it's good enough for me."
Too funny... I think I'm the one who first told Alex Vasquez, the author of that post to wplift, about the original story after I saw you share it here first. It's a small world....
