WordPress Ãœbermensch Matt Mullenweg has accepted a job at CNET Networks. Getting a job with a big-time tech media company would be cool enough on its own. But part of Matt’s paid duties will be to continue working on WordPress. I had the honor of being one of Matt’s references while he was in talks with CNET, so I got to talk to one of the folks there for a while about Matt, his work, and about WordPress in general. I definitely came away with the impression that CNET groks the value of open source projects that are actively maintained.
Matt has now taken another step in his quest for world domination. Congrats!
