My Interview with Matt Mullenweg of WordPress

I had the pleasure of interviewing Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of WordPress, for the SitePoint podcast recently.

Matt and I covered a range of topics including WordPress and MU, contributing to WordPress, commercial plugins, what to expect in the future of WordPress, and how to get involved with WordPress.

Matt is great to interview and we had a lot of fun. I even found out what actor would play Matt if a WordPress movie is ever created. Can you guess who? Listen to the episode to find out!

This is the first in a series of one-on-one interviews we’ll be conducting for the SitePoint Podcast. I’m going to focus on interviewing high profile figures in the open source scene. Stay tuned for much more interview goodness!

  1. Hands down, Apple’s app retailer wins by a mile. It’s an enormous choice of all sorts of apps vs a slightly unhappy number of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, particularly in the realm of video games, however I am not sure I’d wish to wager on the longer term if this facet is important to you. The iPod is a a lot better alternative in that case.
