Business Roundup Week Ending June 30

Supreme Court backs web developer who didn’t want to create same-sex wedding sites.

In a landmark decision that has sparked widespread disappointment, the Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of a popular service provider, allowing them to refuse same-sex wedding services to LGBTQ+ couples. This ruling, based on the service provider’s freedom of speech, is seen as a significant setback for the LGBTQ+ community’s fight for equal rights. Critics argue that this decision undermines the progress toward marriage equality and sets a precedent for potential discrimination under the banner of free speech. The implications of this ruling are far-reaching and could profoundly impact the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights across the nation. The decision underscores the continued challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community in their pursuit of equal treatment and justice.

WP Tavern: WordCamp Europe 2024 Calls for Organizers

WordCamp Europe 2024 is officially calling for organizers, with the event slated to occur in Torino, Italy, from June 13-15. However, this announcement comes amid ongoing criticism regarding a lack of diversity within the organization and attendee demographics. The Italian WordPress community, set to host the event, will kick off the organization process in September 2023, with many teams expected to hold weekly or bi-weekly meetings leading up to the event. Despite the criticism, WordCamp Europe continues to draw a large international audience, and the 2024 edition is expected to be the same. For more on this, see the full article on WP Tavern.
