WordPress Origin Story

I was an avid Movable Type developer, and noticed an innocent looking user named Matt Mullenweg lurking on the Movable Type IRC channel, who was totally not trying to get developers to defect to a competing PHP-based blog-turned-CMS platform.

After talking in the IRC room for a while, and finally meeting him in person at the Future of Web Apps conference in Miami in 2008, I started checking out WordPress in earnest. It quickly won me over, and I’ve been a loyal WordPress fan and developer since then, now basing my company on it as our sole focus. Thanks for lurking, Matt!
