WordPress wins big Le Monde.fr account

I’m sitting here on Pier 38 with Toni Schneider, CEO of Automattic, the folks who make WordPress (I was here to meet someone else and dropped in to say hi). He says that Le Monde (France’s big newspaper) just moved 5,000 blogs over to WordPress. More details on Toni’s blog.

  5. And it was very much needed, as LeMonde was crappy.
