AFP: Blogging guru chips away at Great Firewall of China — the Agence France-Press talked to me when I was in Hong Kong about the early days of WordPress.com and our experience with the Chinese firewall. Today we are still sporadically blocked, nothing official but enough that almost everyone in China uses WordPress.org. It’s funny that this story came out almost two months after the interview because I’m wearing that exact same sweater today.

I think this is the type of leadership that online companies need to have. Congratulations Matt, you lead by example. Brilliant.
You rock, Matt! Your refusal to kowtow to pressure from those who would censor the Internet is extremely laudable. You have our utmost respect and support.
