Matthew Charles “Matt” Mullenweg (aka photomatt) was born on this day in 1984 in Houston, Texas. It all started with a high school trip to Washington, D.C. where he started working on the blogging platform which eventually turned into WordPress. WordPress took off under the umbrella of Automattic the parent company that Matt helped co-found. We got a chance to talk with Matt on stage at Tech Cocktail’s Celebrate conference last October as he shared stories, updates and inspiring words. Matt is also a philanthropist which shines through even on his birthday. You can support Matt’s campaign to generate clean water wells through Charity Water for his birthday.
