Matt Mullenweg Interviewed By CNN Money On 10 Years of WordPress

In honor of 10 years of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg was interviewed by CNN Money.

Matt goes over the fact that WordPress being open source, people trust it. CNN Money asked him if he thought about selling WordPress, but Matt says that WordPress is staying as it is unless he gets to run the show. I don’t blame him. WordPress is his baby and he is doing an awesome job with it. Of course, he doesn’t need me to tell him that… he knows it. :D

The video is not very long, but it is a great tribute to WordPress.

I have embeded the video below for your viewing pleasure, but you can always go to the original site to check it out as well.

  5. Hi Nile,

    Thanks for sharing this interview. I love WordPress and I know a lot of people do. Matt Mullenweg is a cool guy! Thank goodness he created it! I think it is interesting that he majored in Political Science and said it was more helpful for him in an open source project. I love the Bill of Rights! This is a nice tribute. Thanks!

  6. I think that’s another reason why I love WordPress, that the owner has a vested interest in it’s success and it isn’t about venture capitalists and selling the site for a small fortune.

  7. Happy Birthday to WordPress!!
    I think Matt adds a lot of sex appeal to the brand, not just because he is so handsome but the use of Jazz music and themes is a nice backdrop and sets the tone for a brand that’s really cool and hip.
    It’s always great to hear him speak because he started from such humble beginnings which helps him stay grounded and in touch with users.
    Thanks for sharing the video Nile.
