Q&A with Automattic’s CEO

One of the highlights of each WordCamp Europe for me is always the Q&A with Matt Mullenweg. I was in the audience this year too and it was awesome! – Davor Altman

Finding Place through Art and Science: Lyn Baldwin

I began my first field journal in Belize, during my time there for biology field school. Each evening after night walks..

I would jot down a list of the day’s seen species under the fluorescent hum of generator lights. Flipping through the spiral-bound notebook now a decade later, I wish I hadn’t been so rigid in my musings, so clinical in my descriptions of those treasurable weeks in a new place. Now and then memories surface – hiking up trails in Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve; huddling close to campfires pitched by the Sibun River after a day of canoeing; swaying in a hammock and looking out at the sunset while listening to someone strumming the guitar. These happenings now slip through my mesh of English and Latin names, scrawled neat on ruled lines. I wish I did a better job at capturing moments. I wish I could go back.

Happy at Automattic

Happy to be a little part of your extended family & fellow co-walker in your journey to ManageWP to Automattic, you are always such a great inspiration for all. Bravo! Congrats!

My WP and CH Experience

Not so long ago, I was working as a Head of Customer Happiness for ManageWP. It was a great job and I had awesome colleagues and a great office. However, something was missing. I needed more freedom to make a difference and I wanted to bring the concept of Customer Happiness to a whole new level.

I knew that I wanted to combine my love for WordPress with my passion for Customer Happiness. I was certain that I could combine these two at Automattic. And indeed, I can. 🙂
