  1. Hi Matt
    I really enjoyed the interview – half way – will come back and listen to the rest.
    The concept of a beautiful place on the internet is a concept I like. I’ll go a step further – I believe it’s an imperative. The internet can be a scary place for a lone voice in a sea of humanity. This is why I’m a late adopter – and there is probably quite a few of us out there . I think there is a huge potential for growth, but I think the internet needs to be cleaned up ( P.S don’t publish my comment. I’m one of those bloggers who don’t like too much attention 🙂

  2. Great and fun talk, I really enjoyed it.

    If I may, since I don’t know when/if I’ll ever get a chance to attend one of your talk. I wanted to ask your opinion about privacy.

    A while ago, Mark Zuckerberg claimed that “We Are Building A Web Where The Default Is Social”, what is your take on it with respect to WordPress.com and the other Automattic products? Do you believe in the notion of anonymity online?

    ps: I can’t help but notice your resemblance with Richard Branson, from business practices/style to the hair fashion 🙂

    1. I do think that it’s important to have contextual identity, meaning that you might not be the exact same “person” in every context you’re online. I think this is different than Facebook’s one-true-identity approach.

  3. Are you a Buddhist or Taoist or something like that?

    (Is that too personal a question?)

    Not to get all stalker on you, but I hope you’ll take a look at Kuratur 🙂 It’s right there in that zone of social blogging and curation, & you would be our dream advisor (hopefully not just *in* our dreams). Our mission is to empower bloggers & solve their problems.

    I completely agree about Andre 3k and I don’t know anything about rap at all. But I know he’s a genius. The first rap I ever heard (besides Debbie Harry) was Eric B and Rakim – mesmerizing. Your comparison to TS Eliot was an “aha!” moment for me 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing this Matt. I enjoyed watching and getting to know you better. It inspired me to apply for a job with Automattic as Happiness Engineer which seems like an awesome job. On another note, I grew up playing saxophone too and do the same thing with my fingers. Hope I get to make it to a WordCamp someday and meet you in person.
