Automattic

Filed under: WordPress — 23:15 Wed 12 Apr 06

The reason for the ‘wow’ (which I have said many many times tonight) is that Matt asked me to join automattic. You can read his post on his blog. Who’d have thought that answering posts about ‘Headers already sent’ and ‘Cannot connect to database’ would have resulted in this – not me for one. So I said Yes. What it means for me is I get to answer a whole lot more support questions and help WordPress.com develop – and it also means that I keep doing what I do and saying what I say. No danger of anything changing there – forums, guides, the spiel I post here will all remain the same. So.. that’s it really.

  8. […] The news is making the rounds, but what would a WP site be without reporting WP news? Matt discusses the thought process, and explains the details. It seems the funding is primarily meant as a means to better service the wordpress.com users, as well as help keep Akismet running smooth. Another noted point made in his annoucement is the addition of Mark to the fold. If anyone has ever had a WP related question, and ventured into the forum, you are sure to be familiar with him. No one has better served the community in attempting maintain the forums as one of the brightest points of the community. Congratulations to all for being able to take the next step. […]
