WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 300 – Interview with Matt ‘Gutenbeard’ Mullenweg

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 300 – Interview with Matt ‘Gutenbeard’ Mullenweg

In this the 300th episode, John James Jacoby and I interview Matt ‘Gutenbeard’ Mullenweg, co-creator of the WordPress project. We discuss a range of topics including, the somewhat controversial poetry reading that included a curse word prior to the State of the Word, the WordPress Foundation increasing its range of funding, and of course, Gutenberg.

One of the big takeaways from this interview is learning that Gutenberg will not arrive at the flick of a switch. There will be a transition period and a considerable amount of effort to make it as smooth as possible. Unlike episode 296, Mullenweg’s internet is fantastic and we didn’t experience any audio issues. A transcription of this interview will be published in a few days.
