Howdy. My name is Matthew Mullenweg. I’m a kid born and raised in Houston, Texas. I write code, prose, and music. I’ve taken a few pictures too.
I am the founding developer of WordPress, the blogging software that runs much of this site and millions of other sites around the world. The website says WordPress is “a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform” but more importantly WordPress is a part of who I am. Like eating, breathing, music, I can’t not work on WordPress. The project touches a lot of people, something I’ve recently begun to appreciate. I consider myself very lucky to be able to work on something I love so much.
I’ve been named one of PC World’s Top 50 People on the Web, Inc.com’s 30 under 30, and Business Week’s 25 Most Influential People on the Web. It’s probably all downhill from here.
