Listening to the WordPress guy

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

You’ll see the video interview embedded below

It covers a bunch of favourite topics of mine:
– open source
– entrepreneurs – including himself, Jeff Bezos, google, ipod, cloud computing, they even give my old darling IBM a few seconds
– social network software, facebook, twitter, budypress
– plugins
– startup captial
– they have only about 12 employees to start with, now 50.
– about that they have 1200 servers, and 3 low cost data centres (and they expect them to fail, and failover fast)
– caching – they say its easy to cache high volume sites, but the low volume sites cant be cache

I found it very insightful.

Warning : its long – I think like an hour
