The publication said, "Founder and main developer Matt Mullenweg is asking for suggestions on ways to go about accessing WordPress within the country, after expressing his disappointment over this decision, which seems to be another strategy for Turkey to curb freedom of speech."
Curious, I stopped by Erkan Saka's blog, Erkan's Field Diary, to see if he had written anything about this. I didn't find anything. Erkan, a "Ph.D candidate at the Anthropology Department of Rice University [in Texas, USA] and an instructor at the Public Relations Department of Istanbul Bilgi University," is from Turkey and is in the country now. Hopefully, he will write something about WordPress being blocked there.
By the way, The Technology Free Press, my technology blog, is powered by WordPress. However, I don't use the free version."
