  1. Mike Little is an incredibly awesome guy. I was privileged to meet him at WordCamp UK 2012. I haven’t met someone so universally respected in a long time. I haven’t heard a single person say anything bad about him. He is extraordinarily humble, perhaps to his detriment. He deserves this award plus many many more.

    There’s a couple of photos of him posing with myself and other Tavern regular Donnacha MacGloinn on my blog … http://ryanhellyer.net/2012/07/22/wordcamp-edinburgh/


  2. Yeah, Mike is a lovely guy with a wicked sense of humor, we all had terrific fun at that WordCamp, thanks for taking that photo Ryan!


  3. Great, congratulations Mr Little!

    By the way, the video above was taken in Cardiff (in 2009), not Manchester. The title of the blog post is a bit misleading. :)


  4. Hey Mike, the guys at WP Engine say on their website that WordPress was founded in Austin. I think we should all ask them to add Manchester in too. You are too modest ;-)


  5. @Ryan Hellyer – So that’s what that donnacha guy looks like.

    @Daniel Koskinen – Corrected.

    @James Crawford – Actually, WPEngine was founded in the same state as WordPress. WordPress wasn’t founded in Austin, it was founded in Houston, where Matt Mullenweg was born and raised. I suppose if you wanted to get technical, we could say WordPress was founded somewhere within the fabric of the internet.


  6. @Jeffro – That’s Donnacha MacGloinn (proprietor of WordSkill.com) not Donncha O Caoimh (original developer of WPMU and Automattic employee)


  7. @Jeffro: great! The year is still wrong though (should be 2009, not 2010) :)
