I met the most important Matt in the world today at Vancouver’s super-cool blogger conference, Northern Voice. Matthew Mullenweg is the number one Matt on the planet, according to Google, thanks to his work as founding developer of the WordPress blogging platform. For those who happen to like the visual layout and functionality of this blog, you can thank Matt and his friends.
To me, he is the blogging equivalent of Christopher Latham Sholes, inventor of the first working typewriter (I was tempted to make the comparison to Johannes Gutenberg (the inventor of movable-type printing in Europe), but let’s face it, there were many blogging platforms before WordPress ever came along).
To find out more about this guy, just follow these directions which are the only information to be found on his business card:
1. Go to google.com
2. Type in “Matt”
3. Press “I’m feeling lucky”
That’s one cool business card. By the way, this guy is Matt’s number-one competition for top Matt-spot on Google.
