Matt Living Up To His Job Title

If you browse around the Automattic About Page, you’ll notice that Matt Mullenwegs official job title is:

As the Chief BBQ Taste Tester of Automattic, Matt travels the world sampling cuisine and comparing it to the gold standard of Texas BBQ.

Of course this is to be taken tongue in cheek but certainly at the SxSW conference this past weekend, Matt was living up to his job title as Automattic and Conjunctured teamed up to have a Texas style BBQ which over 250 people attended. GirlsInTech stopped by and offered desert in the way of cupcakes.

For pictures of the yummy food, check out Andrew Magers post on the ZDNet blog.

All in all, pretty bummed that I didn’t get the chance to go but considering I’m only 25 years old, I can still say “There is always next year“. If you were lucky enough to attend the event, please let me know how it went in the comments.
