Most people don’t realize this but the WordPress development team is built up of volunteers spending their free-time to create the WordPress core.    This concept trickles down to everyone creating themes and plugins as well.  The work the core developers do is the base for everyone who uses WordPress for their website.   Often times even I forget that they are just volunteers and when something doesn’t work like I think it should it’s them who I blame, although I shouldn’t 😉

So we’re passing around a ‘meme’ sort of attitude on twitter to give a sort of thumbs up for everyone who is involved with helping WordPress’s 3.0 release.

So what you do is go to the and find a nice official WordPress logo to put in your avatar on Twitter, some of us have even done this for our Gravatar at as well.
