WordPress.com (not org, but Automattic-owned .com) names CEO from Yahoo!

5 comments

Word is that SEO Matt Mullenweg of WordPress fame has hired Toni Schneider away from Yahoo! to run Automattic. Toni blogged it, Matt has confirmed it, and if you read the details things are looking very rosy for Mr. Mullenweg (venture funds on the way, nice board, nice control of WordPress, close connections to Yahoo!). Happy Birthday to Matt.
