  3. How I Built This with Guy Raz: E397: WordPress & Automattic: Matt Mullenweg

    Matt Mullenweg turned his early passion for blogging into a flourishing business and an unshakeable idea: that users should be able to share and tweak the code that powers their websites, and that most of those tools should be free to use. As far back as college, Matt was collaborating with far-flung fellow-coders to make blogging less clunky and more elegant and intuitive. Around 2005, he pitched the idea for WordPress.com to his bosses at CNET, but they turned him down, so he launched the idea on his own, eventually tucking the service into a nascent umbrella company called Automattic. Today—after many twists and turns—the company has nearly 2000 employees and a valuation of $7 billion; and WordPress powers more than 40% of the websites on the internet.

    Matt is the co-founder of WordPress (.org, .com) and and essentially the head dude there and at Akismet, VaultPress, Gravatar, bbPress… you know, a few things (see: Automattic). We talk about (roughly in order):

    Q & A

    Will you get more traffic just being on WordPress vs being on Blogger?

    What do you need to consider before you start storing sensitive information on the web like Social Security Numbers? (For starters, PCI compliance)

    Can you recommend a blank starter theme for WordPress? (_s)

    A young developer asks: what should I learn next? (ya’ll know the chorus)

    Wouldn’t it be easier just to build a responsive admin rather than a separate native app for WordPress?

    What kind of apps would Matt like to see be built on WordPress?

    How do you deal with WordPress security? (book)

    re: Culture of Distraction – How does Matt stay focused?
