WordPress is, in my eyes, the best blogging software around, and considering the extent of the blogging trend, these guys deserve the boost. Hopefully, it’ll enable them to develop Askimet, WordPress.com, etc even further. Everything points to WordPress.org and Ping-O-Matic remaining independent and managed by the WordPress foundation, which is also good news.
Matt’s comments also give me confidence that they’re not planning to blow their funding: “Automattic isn’t going to get fancy SoMA offices, throw huge parties at SxSW, or “get big fast.”
Keep up the good work guys!
