Building the Web's Operating System with Matt Mullenweg (Automattic, makers of Wordpress)

Everyone uses WordPress, but who is the brains behind the machine? Meet Matt Mullenweg - musician, rap enthusiast, WordPress founder, entrepreneur and investor. Startup Grind New York City had the pleasure of hosting Matt for a fireside chat. Almost 200 people were in attendance on November 20th at the super cool Google offices in Manhattan to learn more about one of the most popular blogging platforms in existence. In addition to his work with WordPress, Matt also founded Automattic and Jetpack and is an investor in 35 companies. Matt spoke with Startup Grind founder Derek Anderson and gave a smart and funny interview. Since Matt lost his voice the day before, the audience was literally hanging on his every word!
