WordPress has got some prominent pixels recently, in the form of interviews with Matt Mullenweg. His conversation with Tim Ferris was to a large extent about simplicity, and included the following quote. “Simplicity can have a negative impact when it’s the crude reduction of nuances beyond appreciation, a Matisse presented as a 16-color GIF.”
Matt’s conversation with Lindsay Campbell of Wallstrip included a couple of forward-looking questions. Like many other people, Matt sees open social networks as a next big thing. When asked to go long or short on Six Apart, he said, “No comment.”
I was going to add something about WordPress.com, but there’s enough on that for a separate post.
