In this weeks episode of Press This, the podcast of Joost De Valk, he interviews Mashables CTO Frederick Townes. Quite a bit of the interview is focused around listener submitted questions including one or two of my own. The one question and answer I found interesting is when I asked what the delay time was between there being a new update of WordPress released versus when Mashable upgraded to it. The CTO responded that it was dependent upon what the update was for, bug fix, security, etc. For instance, if it’s a security release, Mashable will upgrade immediately while not so for a bug fix release. Considering the size of Mashable.com, I thought there would be a large time span between the two.
At any rate, catch the entire interview right here.
