Matt is not WordPress

Posted in Spam,Wordpress by Elliott Back on January 25th, 2009.

Matt Mullenweg is the creator of WordPress, but recently his blog entries feature mostly galleries of jealousy-inducing photographs taken on jaunts around the globe on some high-end camera equipment. Few, if any, have anything to do with the WordPress blogging software. Most WordPress-focused posts now come from the official WordPress blog.

Since half of the items in my dashboard are currently irrelevant to me as a WordPress user, hopefully the time is approaching when Matt’s personal feed will be replaced or removed.

  5. Well, It's interesting what you say.. I'm starting to using wordpress the nice thing is that my clients can use it as it's not so difficult … so the expierence with that is incredible because in LATAM is almost difficult explain how to use it..

    A Nikon D3 + lenses runs you about 5k. Isn't that good enough for you?

    I believe its actually necessary to define which Feeds are displayed. Perhaps you should switch the original “planet” feed — and create something through yahoo pipes?

    I know its possible in WP 2.7 … your screenshot appears to be an older variant.
