This episode of WordPress Weekly features an hour long interview with Automattic employee, Paul Kim. Paul is mostly in charge of user growth between WordPress.com and WordPress.org but also with some of the other projects that Automattic has under their belt. In this specific interview, I had Paul go over the same presentation that he did at WordCamp New York 2009 slide by slide that talked about what he learned as well as his experience working with Mozilla prior to Firefox 1.0 being released. In order to get the most out of this interview, I encourage you to view his presentation as you’re listening to the show which you can do here via Slideshare. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Kim about the differences and similarities between the FireFox project and WordPress, especially as it relates to the communities of both and their marketing methods.
Kudos goes out to Paul for doing the interview with me while performing daddy duty.
