I run a WordPress Meetup and workshop in Jeonju and was invited here today to give an overview presentation about WordPress. So, this talk is a modified version of the first one I gave in our Jeonju Meetup in January.

In this talk, I will address 4 main points that span the topic "Open Source, WordPress, and the Community." They are:
1. What is WordPress?
2. How big is WordPress?
3. Why should you care?
4. What can you do with it?
