Matt posted an interview he recently conducted with Bloomberg. In this 20 minute interview Matt discusses the staff structure of WordPress and how the platform has been adopted by large companies and now powers 12% of the websites online.
He then goes on to talk about how WordPress was founded and how they made publishing easier for millions of people by making things simpler. Along the way he worked for the popular media website CNet, who later contributed to Automattics initial funding of $1.1 million. He then goes onto how Automattic makes money from WordPress related services.
It’s a good interview and I recommend checking it out if you have time :)
