Our beloved Matt, made the announcement about acquiring WP.com and asked from the users that what should be the ultimate use of this magical domain name. The Blog Herald’s Thord Daniel Hedengren thinks that Automattic should rebrand WordPress.com as WP.com. Although, I think that there can be a better use of this particular domain name.
I would love to see WP.com as one of the open id service or an aggregator service like FriendFeed. It’ll be really awesome if there could be a service that’ll act as our passport for everything on the web. A service where we’ll be able to display our stats, our blogs, our various profiles and be able to point a domain name to it. It’ll be also cool if they could integrate their other services like Gravatar, IntenseDebate, Akismet, PollDaddy etc with that profile/openid service.
In short, I would love to see WP.com as a service that’ll help me create an online business card and it’ll be available to all those who are using WordPress as their choice of blogging software. How would you like to see WP.com.
Random fact – http://wp.mu is a service related to WordPress MU, however is not associated with Automattic in any way. Just wanted to write because, I find that domain name cool enough!
