In a very close category, WordPress came out in front of Elgg and Drupal, who finished joint second.” Yay!

Guardian Interview

When I was in London I had the chance to chat with Tim Anderson who in turn wrote an article in yesterday’s Guardian, WordPress makes a stand for open source morality, which is worth a read. We also got a mention in the same issue in The office of the future is all around by Victor Keegan.

Exciting Day

After my post talking about Vanilla and Pligg yesterday Duncan Riley at Techcrunch decided to write an article saying “Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg has spoken out against a number of open source projects for profiteering from their code.” That of course isn’t true, and the comment thread that follows is interesting.

Tim Ferriss Interview

I was interviewed by Tim Ferriss of The 4-Hour Workweek on “Simplicity and Start-up Alchemy.” It turned out a little denser and more intellectual than most of my interviews.

On Wallstrip!

My conversation with Lindsay Campbell of Wallstrip is now online, including (most of) the end where she cries tears of joy for lolcats. It was a pleasure chatting with the crew there, and I’m curious to see what ventures they attempt now that they have leverage with Wallstrip.

On Cranky Geeks

I was on episode #76 of Cranky Geeks with John Dvorak, Sebastian Rupley, and Om Malik. We talked about Bubble 2.0, unions, iPhones, and vasectomies. This episode was a lot of fun and I suggest checking it out.

Toni on Wallstrip

Toni Schneider of Automattic was interviewed on Wallstrip today. We got to hang out a bit with the Wallstrip team and they’re very sharp, though maybe short on the Wii Tennis. Yesterday they did a musical review of the company behind most states’ Lotto.

Guardian on Splogs

The Guardian: Why Google is the service of choice for sploggers examines spam, splogs, Blogger, and WordPress.com. As you may tell from the title, it’s overly harsh on Google, but nonetheless has some interesting commentary and information. Like I said last time someone wrote about this, I would never suggest WP.com is splog-free because I delete too many of them myself, but it is a problem we take very seriously and are ever vigilant against.
