February was a good month for us, production-wise. We brought you a new theme, a new and improved LiveJournal import tool, and threaded comments. Elsewhere, Automattic launched BuddyPress, a set of WordPress MU plugins that transforms a WordPress MU install into a social network platform. We also launched the I , in partnership with Infectious (which ends on March 30).

  • 351,904 blogs were created.
