This Week On WPWeekly: Matt Mullenweg

WordPress Weekly returns this Friday with special guest Matt Mullenweg. The last time Matt appeared on WordPress Weekly was July 16th, 2010. Needless to say, we’ll have a lot of catching up to do. Among some of the topics I plan on discussing with Matt are:

  • The plugins as features development model
  • WordPress being used for blogging, an app platform, and a CMS at the same time
  • His involvement with WordPress 3.8
  • The future of WordPress and seeing it power 30% of the web
  • His thoughts on Scott Berkun’s book, The Year Without Pants

Join us on Friday, December 6th at 3PM Eastern to hear our interview with Matt Mullenweg live. If you have any questions you’d like us to ask Matt, post them in the comments.

Speaking of Matt, SOMA magazine recently published a great piece on Matt Mullenweg. It’s one of the best stories I’ve read about Matt in a long time. It’s also the most elegant explanation of “Hello World!” I’ve ever seen.

Would you like to write for WP Tavern? We are always accepting guest posts from the community and are looking for new contributors. Get in touch with us and let's discuss your ideas.


  1. A question for Matt:

    ( Apologies if this is a bit dark. ), and the WP community as a whole, is more than just a cool open source project- lots of hard work has built an economy that thousands of developers depend on for their livelihood.

    How tied in is the success, and future, of to you as an individual (Matt) and how can you reassure those of us that depend on to support our families, that if something were to happen to you (sorry) that would keep going strong?



  2. My question is: What is the coolest WordPress Story or experience.


  3. Hi Matt, thank you for all that you do!

    Ever since the multisite feature became a big part of WP, I can’t help but wonder if sub-sites (sub-domain or folder) will have this capability, too.

    In other words, multisite within a multisite. Will this be a possibility in the near future?

    Again, many thanks!


  4. @Mike Jordan – Pretty interesting question. I believe (and I hope most would agree) that the community loves and supports this software on its own, that if for some reason Matt took a trip to Belize (thanks Saul Goodman), we would all still be here to create and keep the work going.


  5. Questions for Matt:

    Any reason Akismet isn’t rolled into the Core and made standard for all?

    Will ever offer options like Google Analytics andMeta Data Description tags? A few simple options like that would make a genuine solution for small business websites that need that info.

    When you’re logged into, home page kinda sucks. Is Matt happy with the current wp ios apps and his plans for the guy that wrote the most excellent Poster?

    Finally, would Matt like to speak at WordPress Dubbo when I get it organised?




  6. Hello tavern people!

    I was very happy with the notice about matt’s interview, but I’m here on the chat and on stitcher and there is nothing about it. Can I have more information about it?

    Regards from Brasil!
