I just came across the original post announcing bbPress on my blog. It’s interesting to read back on that post and comments, like going back through a time warp.

Richard Boakes, one of the first users of Akismet, has a nice summary of the benefits of bbPress.

Jazzle says,  “bbPress is a fantastic example of how the web should be made.”

Since we dropped it last night, bbPress has had 289 downloads. (We’ll look at getting a counter up like we have for WP.) When you Google for bbPress there are about 340k hits.
