WP.com in Red Herring

Just landed in Houston, it’s chilly here. The opening up of WordPress.com got a nice write-up in Red Herring earlier today. Just to clarify two things from the article quickly: I’m working on WP.com with Andy, Donncha, and Ryan and I do think our distributed database architecture (which I’ll write more about later, it’s nothing too fancy) will help us scale cheaply but I’m also a strong believer in big things from small teams, much in the spirit of 37signals.

I am really excited about you guys opening the doors. We are having fun introducing wordpress to all of our blogger friends.

Yeah, 37 Signals is the dream company for entrepreneurial geeks, three guys living across the world, build a product that makes money from the start without the need for VC, and the do it well.
