We have reached a pivotal moment in the history of the web. As WordPress moves on to bigger and supposedly better things than blogging, a declining print industry is fueling a demand for new and exciting publishing platforms. Silicon Valley startups are wrestling for the crown but, in a quiet suburb on the other side of the Atlantic, the next Open Source publishing revolution has begun.
Matt Mullenweg has mastered the art of virtual conversation. The founder of Automattic, the company behind WordPress, didn't really have a choice: Automattic employs 134 people in 105 cities. We talked to him about his strategies.
Part two of a great conversation with Matt Mullenweg. When I visited the US Capitol and walked into the Speaker of the House’s office I saw Nancy Pelosi’s PR person using Wordpress. Now THAT is publishing power and gives you an idea of why Wordpress is so important to the world. Here I talk with Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic, the company that both holds his name as well as produces Wordpress. We talk about the future of Wordpress because they are about to release a new version.
