Jon Stewart, Ron Paul, and WordPress

Quote

Did you know that before you could write crazy shit on Tumblr and WordPress, people had to type their crazy shit up on what was called paper — and distribute it by hand, reaching the few paranoid conspiracists within walking distance.
— Jon Stewart

That was The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart on Tuesday night, referring to Ron Paul’s decades-old newsletters. Just another way to describe democratizing publishing.

Bonus: Ron Paul’s 2012 website runs WordPress. And he’s not the only one.

Double Bonus: Comedy Central’s Indecision site is WordPress too. (I knew thedailyshow.com wasn’t, but it didn’t take long to find one that was.)
