It goes without saying that I believe WordPress is the best blogging application available today. This week Automattic, the company founded by Matthew Mullenweg – developer of WordPress, annouced it had received “a little funding“. That’s great news for all WordPress fans, especially those who use Automattic’s WordPress.com. Like most open source applications, not all of the credit for WordPress can go to Matt, however like most successful open source applications, Matt should get some financial rewards for his efforts to build WP into the great piece of software it is today. Automattic has a lot of other great applications on its plate, and this intial funding should help to secure the future of those as well. Congratulations Matt!
