Automattic Beta

Automattic.com is no longer a placeholder, it now has a bit more info about the team behind WordPress.com and Akismet. This is what I’ve been working on since I left CNET. The site is still just a shell though, a lot more tidying up to do there. Your mileage may vary. (Should we call it Beta?) This week is pretty jam-packed with announcements, so stay tuned. 🙂

World domination seems a likely possibility for you young Mr Mullenweg.

I really like the domain name (after I figured it out). The style is clean yet funky.

Here’s hoping you start making barrel-loads of money and become a bitchy snob like Mena (cos I wanna see you swear and pout on a podium).

[…] Yesterday WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg announced the launch of Automattic, an umbrella company for all of the various WordPress projects, including: the WordPress open source blog tool, the hosted version of WordPress: wordpress.com, the comment spam plug-in Akismet and the forum script bbPress. WordPress developers Ryan Boren, Donncha O Caoimh and Andy Skelton will be working with Matt at Automattic. Matt had recently left his job at CNET to work on WordPress full-time. Automattic Inc. is a bootstrapped startup from a handful of people passionate about making the web a better place. So far we’re best known for our work on WordPress and other projects but we have a lot of other interesting things in the pipeline as well. We are strong believers in Open Source and the vast majority of our work is available under licenses like the GPL. We are not seeking funding. tags: wordpress, opensource, automattic – posted by Scott Beale on Wednesday, December 21st, 2005 Comments RSS feed | Trackback URL […]

[…] Matt is going on full Automattic December 31, 2005 I got hints of this a while ago, about the time Six Apart made it’s deal with Yahoo, so I knew that WP would be the next big announcement (Jeremy Z confirms this) for Yahoo.  Hand in hand with this is the announcement of Automattic .  As described below: It is now official. Today, he has launched a new company, called Automattic, a bootsrapped operation (no, the company is not looking for venture capital) founded by a handful of folks (with a heavy Texas contingent) to manage WordPress, WordPress.com and Akismet (a service to help block blog spam). For now, Matt is working out of his San Francisco apartment. SiliconBeat This is excellent.  I think this kind of business model is a truly good thing.  We have a great, open-source, community-drive piece of software (WP), which has spawned several ventures that will bring in revenue.  I certainly wish Matt the best.   Technorati Tags : WordPress, Automattic       […]
