How Ars Technica Runs WordPress
Ars Technica is one of the most popular tech blogs in the world and has been online for 25 years. They’ve just published a very detailed breakdown of their WordPress hosting stack. This is going to be the first of four articles.
More (AI) Links for WordPress publishers

- The American Journalism Project announced a partnership with OpenAI worth “$5+ million”.
- Google is demoing a “Genesis” AI tool that can write news articles.
Thanks for joining us for this sixth issue.
