LAist: Matt Mullenweg Interview
Over on LAist, there is a short video interview with Matt Mullenweg. While it doesn’t reveal any new information, it is nice to see such an impromptu interview with Matt, which includes the history of WordPress, his involvement, and of course WordPress.com.
Matthew Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress is one of those young people that your parents like to point to when they ask you what the hell you’re doing with your life.
Last week PC World named him the 16th most-important person on the web (two slots above the of the founders of Yahoo!), which isn’t bad for a 23-year-old who gives it away for free.
But what we find most impressive is if you ever want to check in on his site all you have to do is type “Matt” into Google and he comes up at the #1 return, above Mr. Drudge.
Last night we got to spend a few minutes with him at the Ginger Man in Austin just as last call was being announced.
If you are new to WordPress, its definitely worth checking out.
