Where We Were Last Week

Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com, is completely virtual meaning we have no office. Everyone works from home, wherever in the world they may be. We find this works really well for us, and is a natural extension of our Open Source roots, but every now and then it can be very helpful to get everyone in one place and brainstorm what the future of blogging will be like. (Because the best way to predict the future is to invent it.)

So last week we got all of the company that didn’t have a baby recently or one on the way to La Paz, Mexico. We did a ton of work on the site, just not too much that was visible so to compensate I present you with these five pictures from the trip.

Barry and Laptop

Barry shows you can never have too many WordPress logos.

Mark, Andy, and Lloyd

Mark formerly known as Podz, Andy, and Lloyd stroll casually down the avenue.

Matt in Sweater

I was demoing the latest in La Paz fashion.

Matt Thomas

Matt Thomas was grins the whole time, I think because of the arranchera.

On the Beach

Finally here is a picture of us on some remote island. Left to right: Barry, Toni, myself, Mark, Michael, Lloyd, Andy.
