Yes today, 5th of October 2012, has now been labelled ‘Global James Bond Day’! Huzzah!
50 years of the super-cool character is being celebrated worldwide. I’ll not be taking in any of today’s events but did visit the ’50 Years of Bond Style’ exhibition at London’s Barbican recently & it was cracking… & I was made to look woefully under-dressed by a number of mannequins (it was all about the gadgets & gizmos for me though). There’ll be events worldwide &… oh yes, a big ol’ marketing push for the latest film of course, much of which takes places over at www.007.com which, believe it or not, is run on WordPress.
Yes it’s another string to the bow of WordPress, & with the number of widgets & techie facets available to WordPress it’s no great surprise 007 has taken to using it (though it’s deceptively simple to use of course).
So in future when I have cause to reassure people considering the use of WordPress for their website (yes one or two do still think it’s ‘some blogging platform’) perhaps in addition to mentioning the likes of CNN, NBC, Lexus & Spotify as users I’ll drop in ‘oh, & James Bond uses it’… That site does reveal he’s not rocking the very latest WordPress version however so there will be a few little bugs hidden away inside, which surely is no good for Her Majesty’s Secret Service!? M, have a word! After all WordPress system updates are as easy as pie, there’ll be no need for Q to do the job.
