WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 281 – In Memory of Jesse Petersen

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 281 – In Memory of Jesse Petersen

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Ben Meredith. Over the past few years, Ben has established a friendly and professional relationship with Jesse Petersen, who passed away due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis.

Ben shares his unique perspective on who Petersen was as a person and describes the challenges of taking over his business. We emphasized how important it is to create a file with passwords and other login information to help appointed people access a person’s digital presence. We also discuss if saying a person lost their battle with an illness is a negative thing to say.

To close out the show, we talk about net neutrality, 10up acquiring Lift UX, and Let’s Encrypt offering wildcard certificates in 2018.

Stories Discussed:

Automattic Releases Net Neutrality WordPress Plugin Ahead of July 12 Protest
10up Acquires Lift UX
Let’s Encrypt Passes 100 Million Certificates Issued, Will Offer Wildcard Certificates in January 2018

Picks of the Week:
