In this episode we were joined by Matt Mullenweg, CEO of the multi-billion dollar company Automattic, which is responsible for some of the Internet’s most well known products such as WordPress, Gravatar, Akismet, and WooCommerce.
Matt is driven by the mission to allow anyone in the world to have a home on the internet where they can express their thoughts and base their business. At 19 years old, bored with his classes at the University of Houston, Matt first discovered his passion for code and writing. His personal blog was reaching more than 20,000 people at the time but the blogging software was outdated, so he decided to create a new platform, which is known today as WordPress.
I was challenged by his motivation and drive, and I hope you do too - a thought-provoking discussion with the creator of Wordpress.
