Two Cities, Two Launches: A Pair of Sites Built on WordPress.com Enterprise

Some say there’s no greater rivalry than the one between the City by the Bay, San Francisco, and the one-and-only Big Apple, New York City. And considering both cities’ contributions to the industry of tech and big ideas, they’re right!

Two cities, two launches

Recently, both San Francisco and New York City launched initiatives to highlight their technology and startup communities — projects we’re proud to support. While both cities have their own thriving communities, they share one thing: their websites, Where the World Changes and We Are Made in NYare built on WordPress.com Enterprise.

    Enterprise is really interesting, but it’s affordable just for big companies or cities like the examples there… Well, for me and my small scientific blog, im fine with the standard version… :P

    I can see a fee of $500.00 a month as a bit steep now… in time, I might be able to justify it. Shame to pass it by though for the promise it could offer before I run my start-up on a shoestring. I loved the article, it does show hope for the medium we are using here… not just left to the technocrats of out time.
