    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?
