Matt has one of the coolest URL’s around: ma.tt, and for that matter, one of the coolest website’s around. It makes sense, he is the founding developer of WordPress and Automattic, the business behind it.
Matt has lived a classic Silicon Valley story: Starting by programming on a computer in his mother’s kitchen just six years ago, the 25-year-old college dropout turned WordPress into a cultural phenomenon that has now grown to 13 million registered users worldwide.
He previously worked for CNET in San Francisco but now devotes his time to WordPress, along with others, including Sphere, Wegame and Rescuetime. He is one of BusinessWeek’s 25 most influential people on the web in 2009, PC World’s Top 50 and Inc.com’s 30 under 30.
Matt attended a visual and performing arts high school as a Saxophonist in his home town of Houston, Texas. He is an avid photographer, rarely seen these days without his Nikon D3.
