Matt Mullenweg

My wordpress users, but so far I do not really care who the founder of WordPress. Though familiar with the founder / founder of a business, organization, or site of the famous [for example: WordPress] is an important thing. What's more we are the users of these products. From the story of life, innovative thinking and their fantastic adventures can actually be a source of inspiration of our lives.

The pattern I am an apathetic attitude to things (or people) are actually quite stunning may also impinge on the self colleagues in this country. Apathy is a negative mental attitude. This attitude will make ourselves through life just being a user [user] rather than a role as the creator or producer. During this nation's mental attitude like that, so long as it is also this nation will not come forward. There will be no innovation, creation and development of progressive look ahead.

He was a young man whose success is not due to formed or molded since childhood. He was able to succeed even at a very young age.
