Over 100,000 WordPress Plugin Downloads and Counting!


We recently reached a major milestone for the IntenseDebate WordPress plugin: we’ve passed 100,000 downloads of our plugin through the WordPress repository!

Even cooler yet, that statistic does not include the total number of Blogger, Typepad, Movable Type, Tumblr, Joomla, Squarespace, iWeb, Ning, Omeka, Drupal, or Generic installs of IntenseDebate.

Thanks for your continued support and for helping us spread the word about IntenseDebate.  Here’s to the next 100,000!

Beau Lebens Demos IntenseDebate at WordCamp NYC 2009

Last month Beau spoke at WordCamp NYC and he had the opportunity to demo IntenseDebate. Since we thought internet access might be a problem, Beau pre-recorded a screencast (using iShowU for Mac) running through all the features, then just talked over the top. The first video (below) is the pre-recorded screencast, and the second video provides audio and some shots of Beau speaking. Play them both at the same time and it’s like you’re actually there!

The screencast:

IntenseDebate at WordCamp Indonesia 2010!

WordCampID – January 30, 2010Exciting news: Beau and I are heading to Jakarta next month on behalf of Automattic (our parent company) and IntenseDebate to speak at WordCamp Indonesia!  IntenseDebate is a proud sponsor of this WordCamp.  If you’re in the region, book your tickets around January 30, 2010 and come and chat about WordPress with a bunch of like-minded folks! Grab a WCID badge for your blog and help spread the word (there’s a badge for you even if you’re not attending).

Hopefully we can get IntenseDebate translated to Indonesian in time. If anyone wants to help, please email me at labs@intensedebate.com.

In case you’re not familiar with it:

WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.
