Number 16

PC World did an article on “The 50 Most Important People on the Web” and I came in at #16 and the youngest on the list. Thanks to everyone who emailed and wrote, it was a very pleasant way to wake up this morning.

  2. Matt, Congrats. It’s a well-deserved acknowledgement of all the great stuff you’ve done and are doing. is awesome. My 9 yr old daughter set up a blog this weekend. I love the privacy features.

    Regardless kudos to you.

  3. Congratulations, Matt!

    I must confess, I’ve never even heard of some of those people on that list — or even some of the companies they represent — including a few of the top 15 as well.

  4. Congratulations Matt, you are quite an inspiration. As one so influential at your (and my) age you make me realise what I can achieve too, if I try hard. Great work!

  5. Hi Matt,

    WordPress is awesome and I have you to thanks for making it so innovative yet reliable. Justs gets better and better.

    Thanks a bunch and many more kudos will come your way in future.

  6. Congratulations Matt, you are differently not in the bes company, but you differently are the best man in that company, and one of the best that I know.

    On February 19 I wrote about WordPress on my weblog and while I was writing it, I knew that something good is coming to you guys ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. It’s funny how the article forgets the origins of WordPress…

    Your work is greatly appreciated – but PC World seems to forget that you built upon an excellent product created by Michael.

  8. LOL. You beat Ray Ozzie, Jeff Bezos and a whole bunch of CEO’s hands down. We knew that already, now the rest of the world knows it too. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh, and if you ever get to The Netherlands I’d be honoured to buy you that drink.

  9. Congratulations Matt… I think your plan for world domination is going according to plan…

    “I just love it when a plan comes together”….
