Keep up the great work! WordPress, Akismet, and everything associated with the WP community has made maintaining my blog/site so much more about the content and less about the maintenance. Whenever I have new friends ask how to get into blogging I point them to wordpress.com, and I hope to see it continue to scale to the tons of new users that will signup as more and more people are turned onto the power of blogging. Congrats! Matt, congratulations to you and the Automattic on your funding 🙂 Here’s to Automattic and WordPress.com You didn’t link to a photo of succulent BBQ! I’m going to Rudy’s with my camera. More at eleven. Hope it works out for you. Funding can be a tricky thing, but it can also do wonders for projects in need of some cash to move along… Welcome on board Podz! Congratulations Matt. I told News.com that I love your service and I meant it! Keep it up and can’t wait to see what you and your team does next. Keep up the good work! WordPress and Akismet are fantastic. You have done all your best, Matt. Congrats! Well done, Matt. And well said. Mathew I love you guys at WordPress, and so do all my friends that I’ve referred to WordPress.com these past few months. I’m especially stoked for Podz – so awesome! Matt, congrats pal. Here’s to keeping it small and staying frugal. Good things are sure to follow. Awesome! This ensures Akismet will have a long, healthy life. =D If it wasn’t for Akismet, I’d be spending more time dealing with spam and less time blogging about the stuff I love. btw matt, barcamp houston has been moved to june 10th 😛 W00t! congrats, matt. i guess that’s the end of the free lunches from VCs for awhile. mark Keep up the good stuff! Great news Matt… Akismet really saves a lot of my time. A “little funding” for great service. Congratulations to Automattic. Keep up the great work! Great news Matt and nice work on hiring Podz! Here’s to the future! I hope you keep getting bigger 😉 Congrats! Congrats guys! We are huge fans of WordPress and love it. Congrats Matt and I appreciate your approach to the funding. To me it’s a sign of a guy whose primary goal is to build a business, not get rich. Not that there’s anything wrong with being wealthy, but folks you put that first worry me. At thepodcastnetwork we’ve been using wordpress for a year and appreciate enormously what you’ve made available. We’re about to move to multi-user and, again, incredibly appreciative of what you have enabled us to do. You’re continued success will help us succeed by providing the tools for us to build our business on. If you’re ever in Australia, the beers are on me mate. Congrats! Congrats, Matt! I remember when we met in San Francisco at Border’s bookstore and I saw a gleam in your eye that said “I’m taking WordPress exactly where I want it to go.” It sounds like the money you’ve taken will be put to good use so you can grow WordPress the way you want to. Right on! Wishing you much continued success… Congrats, Automattic’s (and WordPress’s) success is very much deserved. 🙂 please reconsider the sxsw parties. thank you. Comments are closed.
