Ten Years of Automattic

In Ten Years of Automattic, Matt Mullenweg takes a look at the first decade of Automattic’s history.

Our work is far from finished, and I hope there are hundreds of failures we learn from over the next 20 years. One of the things that makes me happiest is that I get to wake up every morning and work on the hard problem of making the web a better and more open place, and I do it alongside close to 400 talented people at Automattic and thousands in the broader community.

I’m proud to be part of the team (for over half that decade). Here’s to the next ten!

Charleston with Theme Division

Spent an amazing week with the WordPress.com Theme Division, in Charleston. Kathryn recapped it perfectly. Many photos to tell the tale via Sheri: see latest on her photo blog, Caroline: Happymatticians, Yeah, This, And then this happened, TDIV making dinner (and a bunch more), Erick: Icing in Charleston, Jack: Charleston tdiv Meetup, and my favorite images, below.
