State of the Word 2021
State of the Word 2021 is happening on Dec 14!

Howdy, World! 

Mark your calendars; it’s almost time for State of the Word 2021!

State of the Word is the annual keynote address delivered by the WordPress project’s co-founder, Matt Mullenweg. Every year, the event allows us to reflect on the project’s progress and the future of open source. This year will include that and more.

Due to the pandemic, we moved the State of the World online for the first time ever in 2020. This year, the event will be livestreamed from New York City. That will enable us to take as many folks as possible along for the ride!

Join Matt as he provides a retrospective of 2021, discusses the latest trends he’s seeing, celebrates the community’s amazing wins, and explores the future. Expect to hear about a range of topics, from WordPress 5.9 and Openverse to Web3 and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

What: State of the Word 2021

When: December 14, 2021, between 5 and 7 pm ET/10 – 12 am (December 15) UTC

How: If you’re watching from the comfort of your home or local watch party, the livestream will be embedded on wordpress.org/news.

Have a question for Matt?

State of the Word will be followed by a Question & Answer session. If you want to participate, you can either send your question ahead of time to ask-matt@wordcamp.org, or ask during the event in the livestream chat on YouTube.

If you’re new to State of the Word, the previous years’ recordings (below) will help you get a sense of what the event is about. Check them out:
