If you’re looking for an invite to wordpress.com, I can help you! I can direct you to Matt‘s recent statement that: “The easiest (and cheapest) way to get a WordPress.com invite is to fill out your email on the front page notify form. We’re going to start randomly selecting people from that list.”
That reminds me… the thing I don’t like about the new post editing is that there is no blockquote button. Did it fall off somewhere on the road from 1.5 to 1.6? Of course, there is much more to like than to dislike about editing 1.6. The way that copy and paste of the above quote brought with it the link, for example.
